Alice A. Ward Rudd
Alice A. Ward Rudd’s Opus
It is quieter in our lives today; the organ and piano are hushed. The music from gifted fingers and a tender loving heart is now being shared with a Celestial Choir. Sweet, charitable Alice died Nov. 27, 2010 at her home, at 3016 W. Cedar Lane in American Falls. She was 80 years old.
Alice was born in Mapleton, UT, Sept. 14, 1930 in her grandparents’ home. Her father, Leonard Arnett, was a coalmine inspector headquartered in Price, UT. Hence, Alice began life in Castle Gate, UT, as ‘a coal miner’s daughter.’ She was preceded in death by her father, her mother, Clara Jensen and her half-sister, Wilma A. Nicholson. Alice has two younger brothers: Tom (Marilyn) Arnett in Los Altos Hills, CA, and Jim (Shirley) Arnett in North Salt lake, UT.
Alice graduated from Price High school. She earned a two-year degree at the College of Eastern Utah and graduated from Brigham Young University in 1952 with degrees in accounting and music.
Alice married Ben Ward on Sept. 10, 1952 in the Manti Temple. They are the parents of three children: sons, Karl (Pam) of Pocatello and Lenn (Karla), of Washington Terrace, UT; and a daughter, Sue Ann Shelman (Tod) of Pingree, ID. Ben worked for Amoco Oil in Salt Lake, Boise and Twin Falls. In 1973, Ben and Alice moved their family to Aberdeen and purchased the Amoco Bulk Plant, which is now Ward Oil Company. Alice worked with Ben in the oil business as they reared their family. Ben died of pancreatic cancer in 1993.
In January 1997, Alice married Dr. Dell Rudd of American Falls. Together they served an LDS mission in Melbourne, Australia, and they both served for more than seven years as ordinance workers in the Idaho Falls Temple. An accomplished organist and pianist, Alice shared her talents with many organizations. She loved to help the Junior Miss girls. Her support for all community and church functions has been a boon to those involved. She taught numerous piano students for 60 years. Together she and Dell have 21 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
If you knew Alice, you loved her. If she knew you, she wanted to help. She devoted her life to doing good, serving others and bringing the gift of music to everyone, a true disciple of Jesus Christ teachings. Alice has struggled with oral cancer for three years and although speech was difficult and eventually impossible, she continued to share her love and encouragement to others with cards, emails, notes with her ‘thumbs up’ attitude. She was a gracious example of cheerfully enduring to the end.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, American Falls Stake Center, 111 Church Place. The family visited with friends on Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and from 9:45 to 10:45 before the funeral at the church in the multipurpose room by the kitchen. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Davis-Rose Mortuary.
