RUDNICKI, Jean - After a beautiful 83 years, our beloved Mom has taken her well deserved rest on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.

Proud of her hard working early life, it was spent with her family in Cook's Creek, MB where her farming family molded her into the spunky, hard working, humble and sincere woman she was. Being swept off her feet by the love of her life, Julian (Curly) Rudnicki, she married and moved to Sault Ste. Marie in 1955 to build their own home and fill it with a loving family of their own.

Her proudest accomplishment in life was the loving, raising and nurturing of her four children, Diana Pezzutto (Tim), Michael Rudnicki (Angela), Larry Rudnicki (Donalyn) and Dennis Rudnicki (Terra). She loved watching them grow into the wonderful adults they are today. The joy of being a Baba was evident every time she saw her grandchildren, Anna (Spencer) and Christopher Rudnicki, Meggan Mead (Ryan), Ryan (Patrick) and Amy Rudnicki, Alex Rudnicki and Jesse Herbert. She nurtured each one of their unique personalities. Her grandchildren were all so blessed to have their Baba throughout their entire childhoods. Parker Mead, her great granddaughter was Baba's eyes to the future and someone she thought she would never live to meet. Beloved Foster Baba of many. These children, like her own, brightened her smile every day.

She was the devoted daughter of the late John and Olga Cienki and caring daughter-in-law of the late Anthony and Anna Rudnicki. It gave her great joy to tend to their every need, whether it was pickling, gardening, taking them to $1.44 days at K-Mart or just sitting outside listening to their stories.

Dear sister-in-law of Stan and Barb Rudnicki and caring aunt to Shirley, Janice, Cindy and families. Special friend to Stan Gronskis who became a wonderful companion.

She loved her family unconditionally, fiercely and completely. She was the glue that everyone always gravitated towards and looked to when in need of grounding. We are better for having enjoyed her, laughed with her and been loved by her.

Friends are invited to visit at the Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E. 705-759-2522) on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Funeral service to be held in the chapel on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 1 pm. Rev. Ron Ambeault officiating. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In memory of her love of children, memorial contributions payable by cheque to the Children's Aid Society of Algoma (all funds donated are used towards the benefit of the children) or to Christmas Cheer would be greatly appreciated.

Special thank you to Dr. Rossi for her long standing care and compassion, including home visits where Mom wanted to be. Thank you to the Bayshore nurses for their care.

There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they are gone, their light remains.

We will love you forever.
