(Carol) Rudman, Catherine (Alan) O’Quinn, Amelia Rudman, Monica Rudman (Curt) and Rosemarie Crasi; seven grandchildren; six great grandchildren and sister Anna Beney.

Josephine was born in Barberton, and was a lifelong resident of the Norton-Barberton area.  Josephine was a parishioner of Prince of Peace Parish and a longtime member of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America.  Mom was very proud of her Polish heritage and loved attending the local picnics and functions.  You could always count on hearing the Saturday Morning Polkas on the radio playing.  She retired from Akron Children’s Medical Center at the young age of 83 as a ward secretary.  Mom always offered her advice to those who came to her for she was a wise, strong and motivated woman these traits were then passed onto all of her six children to which she raised on her own.

Mom, in life we loved you dearly, in our hearts you hold a place no one will ever fill.
