Passed away on June 19, 2021, at the age of 85. Predeceased by her parents, Sanford and Ida Rothman, and sister Kathye Sue. She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Gene; sons, David (Sylvia), Jeremy (Dianne), and Joshua (Claire); grandchildren, Kate, Alex, Isaiah, and Eleni; sister Elaine (Leonard Simon); and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Rudy was a dedicated Sunday school teacher at Beth El and a special-education teacher at Twelve Corners Middle School in Brighton. She will be remembered for her generous love of family and friends — never letting a birthday, anniversary, or graduation go by without sending cards and gifts — and will be terribly missed by all who knew her.

Funeral services will be held on TUESDAY, JUNE 22, 2021 at 10 AM in the sanctuary of Temple Beth El (139 Winton Rd.). Those wishing may stream the service on the temple’s website: Interment at Mt. Hope Cemetery.

The family will receive friends at 85 Tobey Court in Pittsford, on WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY from 7-9 PM. Click here for directions. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the MPN Research Foundation [LINK], the ALS Association [LINK], or a charity of your choice.
