Catherine Rose Dudley, that is Catherine with the “C” as she would always say. At 90 years old, she has gone home to her precious Lord. She has lived many blessed years, making an impact, and definitely a difference everywhere she went.
She was born on January 10, 1927 in Providence, Rhode Island, during “the jazz age” there is no wonder she had such a love for music; always singing and dancing with the love of her life, her husband, Guy Walter Dudley. Catherine was an avid gardener and had over nine gardens at one time. Her favorite flower was roses. She always loved to cook and a great cook she was; making food for her friends and neighbors and her church. Catherine and her husband Guy loved their church, Pleasant Street Free Baptist Church in Springvale. Catherine dedicated many years volunteering and was very involved with local community activities and politics. She always believed she could change the world, one person at a time.
She is predeceased by her parents, John and Minnie (Duncan) Campbell, by her brother, John Campbell, Jr. and by her beloved son, George Hahn.
Catherine is survived by her husband, Guy Walter Dudley, by her daughter, Cynthia Chadwick-Granger and husband James, her grandsons, Ryan Chadwick and Michael Granger, her son, Joel Dudley, his daughter, Heather Rose Nelson, great grandchildren, Zeke Nelson and Elina Nelson, her daughter, Lisa Clapp and husband Brian.
