Ge­orge Cantwell Rhudy, 90, of North East, MD, passed away Sun­day, Au­gust 14, 2016, in the Calvert Manor Health­care Cen­ter, Ris­ing Sun, MD.

A life­long res­i­dent of North East, he was born on Au­gust 21, 1925, in Elk­ton Hospi­tal. He was the son of the late James C. and Mary E. (Kinser) Rhudy. He was the hus­band of the late Lizzetta Lo­gan Rhudy, who died on April 1, 2005.

Mr. Rhudy served his coun­try proudly dur­ing World War II in the U.S. Army Air Corps as an Air Cadet.

Prior to his re­tire­ment, he was a block op­er­a­tor for the Penn­syl­va­nia Rail­road and later a freight agent for Con­rail.

Com­mu­nity in­volve­ment was a pri­or­ity to him. He was a mem­ber of North East United Methodist Church and was the long­est serv­ing mem­ber of the North East Fire Com­pany. In ad­di­tion, he was a mem­ber and past pres­i­dent of the North East Li­ons Club, vol­un­teered along with his wife at Perry Point VA Med­i­cal Cen­ter and served as a mag­is­trate in Ce­cil County.

Mr. Rhudy wrote sev­eral news­pa­per col­umns in­clud­ing, “Caught on the Fly” and “By Ge­orge” for the Ce­cil Demo­crat and the Ad­ver­tiser. In his spare time, he en­joyed duck hunt­ing, fish­ing, gar­den­ing, but most of all he en­joyed his fam­ily.

Survivors in­clude his two daugh­ters: Sharon R. Rosen­berg (Charles) and Bon­nie Sue Sim­mons (Ken) all of North East, MD; a grand­son; Lo­gan Rosen­berg (Milly) of Wal­land, TN; and a grand­daugh­ter; Morgan DeWeese (Bran­don) of Elk Neck, MD.

She came to know the Lord in her teens and was a mem­ber of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church for over 75 years, serv­ing Him by teach­ing Sun­day School, Va­ca­tion Bi­ble School, Women’s Cir­cles and par­tic­i­pat­ing in many churchre­lated com­mit­tees and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ruth and Bill en­joyed many ac­tiv­i­ties in their spare time in­clud­ing square danc­ing, a hobby that over the years al­lowed them to make friends far and wide. This ca­ma­raderie of friends even­tu­ally ful­filled their as­pi­ra­tion of a nine month RV tour through­out Mex­ico, Canada, and the United States.

Ruth loved to travel, vis­it­ing Is­rael, Aus­tralia, New Zealand, Spain, Switzer­land, Austria, Ger­many, Hawaii, Alaska and the Caribbean Is­lands. Fol­low­ing re­tire­ment, Ruth and Bill took up res­i­dence in Naples, Florida and be­came the ul­ti­mate snow­birds, re­turn­ing to their Aberdeen roots for 5 months each sum­mer. They would visit fam­ily and friends and en­joy a respite from the Florida tem­per­a­tures. Ruth was an avid Orioles fan, watch­ing and track­ing the scores for ev­ery game even up un­til her last days.

She will be fondly re­mem­bered as lov­ing, com­pas­sion­ate and gen­er­ous to fam­ily, friends, and all who knew her; a rare, gen­tle spirit that will be dearly missed.

Ruth is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Billy D. Sis­som Jr. of Lake Mary, FL and Ja­nis S. Price of Port De­posit, MD; grand­chil­dren Re­becca M. Price of En­gle­wood, FL, Tara Sis­som of Sacra­mento, CA and Con­nor Sis­som of Lake Mary, FL; and great grand­chil­dren Sa­muel De Los San­tos and Amelia Price both of En­gle­wood, FL. Ruth is sur­vived by a brother, Ge­orge C. Hiob of Chin­coteague, VA. and a host of nieces and neph­ews.

She was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band Billy D. Sis­som Sr. of Port De­posit, MD, brother Charles G. Hiob Jr, of Havre de Grace, MD and daugh­terin-law Carol A. Sis­som of Lake Mary, FL.

The view­ing will be held at Tar­ring-Cargo Fu­neral Home, Aberdeen, MD on Fri­day, Au­gust 19 from 2-4 pm and 7-9pm. Fu­neral ser­vices are sched­uled on Sat­ur­day, Au­gust 20 at 11am at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Mt. Royal Ave., Aberdeen. In­ter­ment will fol­low in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Ceme­tery.

The fam­ily re­quests that in lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions may be made to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church or the char­ity of choice.

On­line con­do­lences may be left for the fam­ily at www.tar­ring­cargo.com.
