MEADVILLE — Susan (Susie) K. Rudd, 45, of Meadville, passed away at Meadville Medical Center on Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

She was very active with UCIP and the ARC. She had taught sign language to preschoolers in Crawford County. She especially enjoyed camping with her friends.
