Eva Rudy

August 22, 1936 — June 18, 2023

Eva Marie Rudy, 86, of Thomas, WV, passed away peacefully on June 18, 2023, at Cortland Acres. Born on August 22, 1936, in Lancaster, PA, she was the daughter of the late Robert F. and Carrie E. (Brubaker) Stetter.

Eva was a graduate of Manheim Township High School in 1954. She felt a calling from the Lord to attend the Moody Bible Institute from 1954 to 1955; becoming homesick, she returned home and attended the Millersville State College, where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 1959. She met her husband to be, J. Paul Rudy, in 1958 and was married to him in 1959. She was a teacher in St. Louis, MO, and at Mountaineer High School in Davis. She and her husband owned several businesses in both WV and PA. Eva was an avid golfer, seamstress, and traveler. She loved music, teaching others how to play piano and playing the organ at the First Presbyterian Church of Thomas for several years. She was a member of the Lions Club, active member of several church organizations, and a volunteer at Cortland Acres. Above all, her greatest love was for her Lord and her family.

She is survived by her two children, Pamela Kosanic and husband Joseph of Davis, and Eric Rudy and wife Marylyn of Thomas; two granddaughters, Megan Kosanic of Pittsburgh, PA, and Melanie Miller and husband Mark of Justin, TX; a great granddaughter, Adaline Miller; and several sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, J. Paul Rudy, on October 10, 2018 and two brothers, Robert and Don.

In accordance with Eva's wishes, she was cremated. Friends will be received on Thursday, June 29, 2023, from 10 to 11 AM at the Community Bible Church in Davis. A celebration of life will be held at 11 AM with Pastor John Callaway officiating. Interment will follow in the Rose Hill Cemetery.
