Sandra Lee Rudeck, 63, of Moose Lake, passed away and rejoined her Lord Oct. 31, 2012.
Sandie was born in Cloquet Oct. 9, 1949, the oldest of four children. She grew up with her siblings John (Debbie) of Cloquet, Paul (Jodi) of Barnum and Suzie (Mike) of Superior, on Big Lake west of Cloquet.
Sandie brought great joy to all those she knew. An ordained minister in Spiritual Science Foundation, she presided over many weddings and funerals. Strong in her faith, Sandie was eternally optimistic and always willing to help others. A daughter, sister, wife, mother, minister, friend and girlfriend, Sandie loved interacting with others.
She lived in Cloquet, Colorado Springs, Colo., Esko, Island Lake (Duluth) and, most recently, Moose Lake during her life. She was a waitress, skilled crocheter, and she shared a passion for the holidays, in particular Christmas.
Among her proudest moments was graduating from Fond du Lac College as an over-50 college student and being ordained a minister in Montreal, Canada.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Renee Leino; father Don Rousseau; and grandparents Ernest and Jeanie Vestin.
Sandie is survived by her sons, Donald of Scanlon and Allan (Roxanne) of Esko; granddaughters Hannah, Mia and Erica; three siblings; and many nieces and nephews.
A GATHERING OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS: 2 until the 3 p.m. memorial service Saturday, Nov. 10, in Bethesda Lutheran Church in Carlton.
A celebration of her life will be held at the Carlton VFW following the service.
