Vivian I. Rudeen

July 29, 1924 — June 7, 2017

Rudeen, Vivian

God called Vivian Rudeen home on June 7, 2017 at the age of 92. She is now enjoying a glorious reunion with family and friends.

Vivian was born July 29, 1924 to Lola and Roscoe Frasier in Ceresco, Nebraska. She attended the University of Nebraska, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics. In 1950, she married the love of her life, Donald Rudeen, who preceded her in death in 1967.

She was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Providing a loving, warm and comfortable home for her family was always her first priority. Her love lives in all of us and we ask you to keep David (Linda) Rudeen, Diane (Don) Alsbrooks, Becky (Bill) Sadler, Doug (Shawn) Rudeen and Amy (John) Fidel, as well as her 12 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren in your prayers.

Vivian taught in the Albuquerque Public Schools System for 20 years at Cortez and Zuni Elementary schools. After retirement, she found great joy as a volunteer with the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Please join us for a celebration of her life Monday, June 19, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at FRENCH – Westside. We would like to thank Bee Hive Home - Chessman and Heritage Hospice for their love and care of our mom.

If desired, donations may be made in honor of Vivian’s great-granddaughter to the Child Life Program, UNM Children’s Hospital, 2211 Lomas Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
