Patty married Kerry Rud on October 15th, 1982. They made Alexandria their home and raised their son, Steven. Patty worked the last 30 years at Cub (formally Pete’s County Market) in Alexandria.

She enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, trips to the casino and her dogs “Spice” and “Sage”.

Her greatest pride and joy was her grandson Brody. She loved watching him grow and spending time with him.

She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Kerry; son, Steven (Amber) Rud and grandson, Brody of Parkers Prairie; sisters, Kathy (Jack) Hawk of Bufffalo,  Cheryl (Marty) Laudert of Fairbanks, Alaska, Mary Jo Schepers (and special friend John Evens) of St. Cloud, Sandy Wessels of Mauldin, South Carolina, Gail (Jack) Pelzer of St. Joseph; brothers, Jim (Linda) Schepers of Apple Valley, John (Angie) Schepers of Vero Beach, Florida; brother-in-laws, Mike (Laurie) Rud of Fergus Falls, Pat (Sandi) Rud of Miltona, Kelly Rud of Parkers Prairie, Tim Rud of Miltona; sister-in-law, Monica (Rollie) Wesen of Alexandria.

She was preceded in death by her parents; in-laws, Ross and Ellen Rud; nephews, Christopher Schepers, Adam Toenies and Jeremy Larson.

Although Patty’s last years were challenging, she fought her cancer with quiet grace and a fierce bravery. She never complained and was an inspiration to all that knew her.

A special Thank-you to Douglas County Hospice, Dr. Raflores, and all the nurses and staff that helped Patty and her family on this journey.
