Rudolf, Lucille M. A Wonderful Life, title of a legendary movie, also a perfectly apt description of a remarkable lady who for so many years was the heart of a large, loving family.

Laurie Conway left a message on April 6, 2009:
My Name is Laurie and I work nights at the Heritage. I want to express my heart felt condolences to your family. I so enjoyed taking care of Lu and talking with her. She was the true light of my night. I would always share stories of my cats and the funny things they did. We always were laughing about them. Just talking with her made my night. It breaks my heart to know she won't be there to talk to. She was a very special lady who will always have a special place in my heart.

I would like to extend our sympathy to the Rudolf family from myself and my family, including the Vanderpools. Lu is one of the reasons working at the Heritage is so enjoyable. We'll all miss her, and miss seeing her family.
Bob & Sue Hayes left a message on April 6, 2009:
Please accept heartfelt wishes and prayers from Sue and I. I feel like I lost another mother. When my mom died your mom embraced me and said that she was my new mom now. After that my Christmas cards were sent to Mama Lu. She was my Godmother but I don't think it would have made a difference. If not for your mom and dad Hayes Mfg might have been nothing more than a pipe dream. Lu led the kind of life people dream of. I have to grin when I think of the mischief Big Al, Jumbo, Lu, and Jean are having right now! I know she is proud of all of you. I'm sorry Sue and I can't be there with you. We're in Florida and the brothers and their sons are meeting down here for our Annual Meeting (yes, some glof might be played). Your family is the best and we'll be thinking of all of you.
Larry and Darleen Laus left a message on April 6, 2009:
Larry and I would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family. We feel privileged to have briefly known such a great lady.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

To the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family and close friends of Lucille: Our family wishes to express our deep condolences on your loss. Joe & I have known Dave & Pat Rudolf and their children for years and after meeting more of Lucille's family I can see what a blessing she has been in your lives. Even when she was near death I could see her strong faith, loving nature and deep caring for others that has obviously been a cornerstone of your family. It was a privilege for me to care for her briefly as one of the hospice physicians at Cherry Meadows. Rest assured in her graceful presence in heaven and continuing place in your hearts for all of your lives. Joe Drusch & Nancy Lindo-Drusch, MD Monica, Greg, Dan and Maddie Drusch John and Alice Lindo (Nancy's brother & mother)
