Mrs. Rudolph lived in and near Lowell until the death of her husband in the spring of 1909, at which time she went to make her home with her daughter Lydia at Boise. Although Mrs. Rudolph lived in and near Lowell yet she thoroughly enjoyed her home in the West, and it was her express wish that she be laid to rest at Boise.
Mrs. Rudolph had not been well for a period of three years, yet a complete breakdown did not come until last February and from that time on she has been an almost constant sufferer, yet always bearing her suffering most patiently. During the month of August she seemed to rally quite materially so much that the family took on new hope of a possible recovery only to be disappointed for she soon showed signs of weakening and on Sunday, September 28th, she took much worse and gradually weakened, suffering intensely until the morning of Friday, October 3rd, when she passed away. Her daughter, Mrs. A.C. Jensen was constantly at her side and did all that loving hands could do.
Mrs. Rudolph was devoted Christian woman, who to know was to love and reverence. Besides a host of friends both in Lowell and Boise, she leaves two sisters, Mrs. Mary Hoose, of Chicago, and Mrs. Lena Wagner of Kankakee, Ill.; three sons, Frank L. of Lowell, John E. of near Crown Point, and George L. of Boise; and two daughters, Mrs. W.E. Bruce, of Lowell, and Mrs. Andrew C. Jensen, of Boise, Idaho; one daughter in law, Mrs. Charles Rudolph; and thirteen grandchildren.
The funeral services were conducted October 5, 1919, at Boise, Idaho, Rev. Feese of the Immanuel Methodist church officiating. Interment in the Morris Hill cemetery. The notes of the services are being transcribed and will be sent to the relatives who could not be there.
