In loving memory of the late Sarah Lois Rudd who sadly passed away on 16th October 2014
Our mother Sarah Lois Rudd nee Wheat was born in Stretton on Dunsmore, Warwickshire on January 11th 1957 to Bernard Wheat and the late Barbara Aubrey. She was sister to Johnny (Lewis), Jeremy and Verity, and step-daughter to Gillian Wheat. Her main career was as a Telephonist for British Aerospace at Bitteswell, Leicestershire where she met our Dad, Stephen Rudd who she later married and had a son Scott while living in Rugby. Unfortunately in her early twenties she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Both our parents were made redundant so they followed the work and moved to St Ives, Cambridgeshire where they then had a daughter Naomi.
Our mum was a great fan of music and was known for her love of Rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Guns n Roses to contemporary Pop music from Genesis, Bryan Adams, INXS and Robbie Williams. Mum was also a great lover of the Soaps on TV and would rarely miss shows like Eastenders and Corrie.
As a family we were fortunate to have many enjoyable experiences and make very happy memories with our Mum. Visiting the Wheat family in Fishguard, visiting Scotland, spending summer holidays at the East Anglian coast, driving across to the South of France, flying to the Canary Islands. A lot of these times we travelled and holidayed with our Grandparents, Thelma and John Rudd who have always supported and thought dearly of our Mum Sarah. The unforgettable Christmas and New Year Cruises sailing around and visiting locations in Europe and parallel islands to North Africa that our Mum enjoyed greatly.
As time went on Mum’s illness became harder on her and the family and she made the difficult decision to leave the family home, separate from Steve and move into nursing care to Askham Place Doddington, March. There she has spent her last years and made many friends with fellow residents, the nursing staff and all the carers who she always bonded well with. She always loved to introduce us, her children to her friends and keep up to date during our visits with our lives and careers.
On the early hours of Thursday 16th October 2014; Our Mum Sarah passed away peacefully in her sleep. Today we lost our beautiful Mum who taught us so much in life and we could not have asked for a better role model to look up to. Everyone including ourselves always said that our Mum was a Ray of Sunshine, always smiling laughing with a wicked sense of humour. Rarely would you see her upset, sad or unhappy, including the difficult 30 or more years she fought against MS.
We love you and admire you so much Mum. We are heartbroken and will never stop thinking about you. No matter what happens in our lives we know you will always be there in our hearts, thoughts and unforgettable memories.
Love you always and forever.
Scott and Naomi
On a lasting note we would like to offer our great thanks to all the nursing and care home staff that made our Mums life comfortable in a happy and welcoming environment through out the time she lived at Askham Place, Doddington.
