Hope Rudy Obituary, Death – As a result of the accident that occurred on May 28, 2023 at Akron Children’s Hospital, Hope Autumn Rudy, who was 3 years old and from Smithville, received her angel wings. Daniel “Cole” and Mariah (Beery) Rudy welcomed their daughter into the world on November 4, 2019 in Wooster. Hope possessed a lively attitude and a dazzling grin that was contagious. She was kind, kind, and intelligent, and she had never known a stranger in her life. It brought her great joy to look after her brothers and to be with the rest of her family. She adored going to the library, where she could spend hours reading books and listening to bedtime stories.
She had a lifelong desire to see the world and always had her luggage packed and ready to go, regardless of whether she was visiting her grandparents or going camping. Hope delighted in both singing and playing with the other children in the local church, which was one of her favorite places. She had a lot of fun dressing up and acting out different roles, such as a nurse or a police officer, where she would issue people Band-Aids and citations for speeding. Hope’s final act of generosity was to give the gift of hope to other children by donating her organs so that other children could have a chance at life.
Parents Cole and Mariah, brothers Malachi and Jadon, grandparents Dwaine and Shelly Beery, Patty Sense, and Ed Rudy, great-grandparents, and a large number of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends are among those who have been left behind. Funeral services will be performed at the Smithville Apostolic Christian Church on June 3, 2023 at 10:30 a.m. The church is located at 8530 Fulton Rd. in Sterling. The ministers of the church will preside over the ceremony. After the service, burial will take place at the Apostolic Cemetery. On Friday, June 2, 2023, friends and family are welcome to call from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Auble-Gillman Funeral Home located at 360 W. Sunset Dr. in Rittman, and from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. at the church on Saturday.
