March 3, 1932 - November 23, 2020

I was born March 3, 1932 to Archie and Nellie McCallum (nee Duce) on the Fred Wilson Farm in the Cherry Valley District at Rathwell, Manitoba.
I passed away on November 23, 2020 at the age of 88.
On May 19, 1956 I married the love of my life, Frank Rudnicki. We enjoyed 48 years of marriage, and with our union we had three daughters: Sandra (Glen), Glenda (Charles), Corinne (Rodrick). In later years we enjoyed and loved four wonderful grandchildren: Haley, Justine, Sarah, and Alexander.
I was predeceased by my mother Nellie (1977); my dad Archie (1988); my husband Frank (2004); and my beloved brothers, Wilfred, his wife Marion, Jack, Leslie; and my good friend Arlene. On the Rudnicki side, I was predeceased by Tony, Rose, Rudy, Frances, Walter, Joyce, Cliff, Charlie, and Marie.
I have many nieces, nephews, godchildren: Diane and Cindy that I had a special relationship with. I enjoyed many phone calls with all.
I was a telephone operator from a young woman and left to raise the girls, and later returned when they were in junior high. I have many fond memories of the MTS people that became dear friends. I have a special group of friends, my high school classmates, that gave me many years of enjoyment at our annual class reunion.
Thank you to the Parish of St. Mary Magdalene and Reverend From for your prayers and thoughts for me.
My last home has been at Fred Douglas Lodge, the staff and caregivers provided wonderful and compassionate care.
If you desire to make a donation, the Fred Douglas Foundation is a worthy recipient. Fred Douglas Foundation, 1275 Burrows Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba R2X 0B8.
Mom will be privately interred at Glen Lawn Memorial Gardens with Dad, due to COVID-19.
