Obituary

Rachelle (Shelly) Rudo (nee Jonas) passed away on March 27, 2021 at the age of 70. She is survived by her sons Matthew (Jennifer) Rudo and Adam (Cheryl Pfeffer) and her grandchildren, Sara Rudo, Jackson Rudo and Charlotte Rudo, sisters Andrea (Sam) Breault and Lori Maleson, sister-in-law Rochelle Rudo, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Clifford Rudo, her parents Samuel and Nora Jonas.

Shelly was a beautiful woman, inside and out. She was impeccably neat and tasteful and her home reflected it, yet it was always warm and welcoming. She had many friends, most of whom were like family to her. In fact, some of her friendships dated back to her early childhood, yet some of the most significant bonds she formed were with some she met later in life. She was especially close to her sister-in-law, Rochelle, who was more of a sister to her than a sister-in-law, and a trusted friend. Most of her friends were so close to her that they were not only there for the good times, but also never failed to be there to help and support her through her many illnesses. She also frequently spoke of the group of women with whom she played Bunco for many, many years and their annual holiday party, which she usually hosted. She definitely had a flair for entertaining as well, and enjoyed doing it.

Anyone who knew Shelly knew that she was very sensitive and had a kind heart, and, as her granddaughter Sara said, a pure soul. She was first and foremost the most loving and devoted mother and grandmother. Even as her boys became adults, she never stopped saying how proud she was of them and how it touched her heart that they remained so devoted to her. They were always there for her, whether it was to help around her apartment, run errands for her, or just to check in to see how she was. They meant the world to her. Of course, the light of her life was her grandchildren, to whom she was also extremely close. She was never too busy for them and often spoke of the lunches with Sara that she loved so much and the talks with Jackson, and whenever she was able, she was there for the events of their lives, whether it was birthdays, holidays, school performances, athletic events or whatever. She loved to cook for her children and grandchildren, and whenever they came over, everyone had their favorite meal and there was always a freezer full of sweets that included each of their favorites. As sick as she had become over the last year, just seeing her newest granddaughter, Charlotte, would just perk her up and lighten her mood, though she was never one to feel sorry for herself and always retained her sense of humor and optimism. She loved her family, including her nieces and nephews and cousins from both sides of her family, and they all adored her. She had a wonderful marriage of 45 years to her beloved Clifford, her high school sweetheart, for whom she pined until the day she passed away. The family is finding some consolation in that they will be united once again.

Shelly was very loved by so many and will always be very, very missed by everyone who knew her and never forgotten.

Services are private. Virtual shiva will be held on Tuesday at 7pm and Wednesday at 8am. Please check back for the links. Please omit flowers. Contributions in her memory may be sent to the Scleroderma Foundation, 300 Rosewood Drive, Suite 105, Danvers, MA 01923. A public service is to be held in the coming months.

To the entire Rudo family,
We met Rachelle many years ago when my cousins, Rona and Barry Gerskov, daughter, Sara, got engaged to Matt. She was always very friendly and we enjoyed her company over the years at family events. May she now be out of pain and rest in peace.

Twenty years ago, Shelly and Clifford and my husband and I ran out of the First Seder because we got the call that our first grandchild, Sara, was about to be born. We rushed over to St. Joseph's Hospital and waited not very patiently. Clifford and Barry sat quietly in the waiting area while Shelly and I watched where the nurses went in and came out. We found the delivery room where we heard Jennifer and Matt's voices. We listened with our ears against the door until we finally heard Sara's first cry. I don't think either of us had ever been happier. Twenty years later, on the night of another First Seder, Shelly sloughed off all pain and left this earth. She was dearly loved and will be deeply missed. May she rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Jonas/Rudo Family as they mourn the loss of their beloved Shelly. She was an incredible person who loved her family and adored her friends.

My wonderful memories of Shelly go back to the mid 50's when we lived on Nelson Avenue. Our mothers, Nora and Ethel, were best friends, and are buried at the same cemetery, across the path from one another. Shelly gets her love of baking from her mother who baked gorgeous cakes for the three Steinhorn kids' bar and bat mitzvahs.

Shelly was such a beautiful, sweet and humble person. We never lost touch through the years; instead, our friendship became stronger. She always called me her "oldest" friend. Whenever we met for lunch, we would sit and talk for at least 3 hours. But, that was never enough. She and Clifford had a beautiful marriage. She missed him so much. She loved talking about her sons and was so proud of their accomplishments. Whenever I asked her about her grandchildren, Sara and Jackson, she would start off by saying, "Oh, Phyllis," and then her whole face would be one huge smile. She was "over the moon" when it came time to finally meet Charlotte Jay for the first time. Shelly and I sat on her porch and also spent time on her favorite bench in the lovely park near her apartment. She was always cold and loved to sit in the sun., the hotter the better. The last time we were there, I was wearing a short-sleeved top, and she was bundled up in a winter coat, hat, scarf, gloves, and boots.

Whenever I saw Shelly, or we talked on the phone, she would ask how I was doing, She never put herself first. Her attitude was positive and hopeful. Despite the diagnosis and pain, she fought a valiant battle.

I will miss you so much, my precious, darling friend. You were such an important part of my life for so many years. Your sadness was my sadness; your joy was my joy. Rest in peace knowing that you were loved and adored by so many. You and your legacy of life, love and laughter will live on forever. Thank you so very much for your devoted love and genuine friendship.

I was so saddened to learn of the passing of Shelly. Truly the warmest, kindest, caring and most gentle human being....
and an incredible listener of others. You knew you had her full attention and could feel her being present in the moments you were in her company - selfless to the core and with all her own medical issues that could be all consuming, one would never know as she always presented herself with a smile and such warmth. I was not one of her closest friends but we shared two very special friendships and had opportunities to have dinners together and celebrate their birthdays over the years. I will miss seeing Shelly and being the recipient of her warmth a d beautiful smile and out carch-up conversations.

I am quite sure that our very dear friend Shelley B. is greeting her with open arms at this moment. G-d certainly created an imperfect world with much unfairness but I do believe that Shelly was one of his creations that ranked as close to perfect as any human can be.

Shelly, you will be missed and always remembered by so many who love you. I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Rudo/Jonas family and all of her very dear friends.

I first met Shelley in the 90’s at Greenspring Raquet Club. I used to watch this beautiful smiling person work out with such devotion and intensity. I soon came to learn that this devotion was apparent in anybody or anything in her life. When the gym closed ,we promised to keep in touch,and we did. Sharing lunches, pictures of her family, and recipes every few months. Shelley never complained. She just didn’t want to be a bother to anyone. She was always interested in me and my family . You could talk to her about anything. I am so glad that I was lucky enough to call her my friend. She was one of the good ones .

My condolences to the Rudo/Jonas families. I remember the first time I met Shelly at a party 47 years ago and I remember the last time I saw her about two months ago. Yes the circumstances were entirely different but one thing remained the same and that was Shelly. She was sweet, charming, lovely and gracious under all circumstances. May she rest in peace.

I have so many memories of Shelly and the entire Rudo family! Shelly and Cliff knew of all the newest restaurants growing up. I remember going to Cheesecake Factory in Bethesda with them to celebrate Adam and my birthdays! We had never seen food like that! And then other delicious meals at Uncle Julios Rio Grand! I loved seeing Shelly at Greenspring Gym, and catching up with her before our work outs too! She was always present! And truly had such a great friendship with my mother! And a great couple relationship with my parents. They miss you both so much. Love Always, Nikki

Shelly and Clifford came to our home several times to share Shabbos dinner. It was a highlight of our week when they would come. We continue to this day (years later) to enjoy the games she brought for the children - a piece of her in our home...
After Clifford left us, Shelly spoke only of how grateful she was to have had 45 years with him, the love of her life. She kvelled over her grandchildren and was over the moon with delight at Adam's marriage. We worked together briefly at CHAI, and she was one of the kindest most supportive presence daily for me. Any time I sent out a request for an upcoming event, Shelly was the one person in the building who responded and baked. Her baking was epic, and she adored fresh Challah.
I pray the family will find comfort in the tremendous love and light she brought everyone. She will be sorely missed.

I was so very saddened to learn of Shelly’s passing. We met some years ago, working out at the gym, and formed a warm and genuine connection, that lasted long after those days. First thing in the morning, she was ALWAYS happy, with a ready smile and easy laugh. Though she never complained, she was gentle and realistic about herself and a compassionate listener. Whenever we’d bump into each other, that closeness was immediate and I regret that we didn’t get together more often- I will miss her graceful presence but will think of her with love and that beautiful smile-

Dear Matthew, Adam & Family

Your mother was a special person to me. She was proud of sons and grandchildren. She was my savior at work and was always willing to cover for me at the front desk. She would do anything for you. We both bonded over the loss of our husbands. Your father and my late husband had the same birthday.
I spoke with her a few weeks ago and she told me she was in the hospital. I am truly heartbroken over your loss. She is someone I will never forget. May her memory be a comfort and blessing to all of you!💕🦋🌈🙏🏻💔

To the family of Shelly Rudo, I met Shelly at work through CHAI. She was very welcoming and friendly from day one. I thought I made good banana bread until I tasted Shelly's and she was generous enough to share her recipe. Later on we marveled at all the same people we knew, yet had never met each other before CHAI. Shelly was such a good soul. May she rest in peace and may you be comforted by all the wonderful memories you have of her.

To the Rudo/Jonas families

I am heartbroken over the loss of my dear friend Shelly. We met as teenagers and I knew back then that I had a friend for a lifetime. I always considered Shelly my other “big sister”. As we matured and grew older, so did our friendship. We would just pick up after the last conversation like no time had passed. I am overcome with sadness right now, but I know in time that my wonderful memories will bring a smile to my face. I know the family has their own wonderful memories as well, and may they bring light and joy into your lives.

Sending our love and condolences to all of Shelly's family and friends. Shelly, though we didn't know her very long always made us feel loved as family. Cheryl, our daughter, was loved by her and she expressed how happy she was that Adam had her as his wife. We have fond memories of her at their wedding. And how she loved her grandchildren, Sara, Jackson and Charlotte! She enjoyed Sara's visits, almost every week, baking for her and learning from Sara how to use her computer. Charlotte got to visit her for a week. Shelly had toys and books all organized and ready for her. Adam and Cheryl would have her facetime with Charlotte once they were back in Miami. I loved to watch their loving interaction. Shelly will be sorely missed by all. May you all find comfort knowing she is reunited with the love of her life, Clifford.

Dearest Matt, Adam, Rochelle ( I know as the 1st Shelly Rudo), Andrea, Lori and the entire family, I am so very sorry to hear about Shelly’s passing. I’ve know Shelly since her pre- teen years. She always had the sweetest, calming , angelic nature. She never changed . Always so quick to giggle ... I loved that silly part of her. I’ve run into Shelly many times over this lifetime and we started out realizing that we had similar history. We both married our high school sweetheart, and ( we both lost them), but the best memory was that we always kvelled about our sons. We were the mommy of boys. Shelly lit up and beamed talking about her boys and grandkids. Shelly was a very loving and beloved soul. Her love, Clifford has his arms around her now.
Sending you my deepest condolences.❌⭕️❤️❤️❤️

Shelly will remain in our hearts forever.

Shelley was the best of the best. I knew through her husband Cliff (whom she called Clifford) and we had a memorable trip to Italy about 10 years ago with me and my wife Carolyn. The memory I have of Shelly is her request before we left on our trip to see her grandchildren and hugged them up since we would be away for 10 days. And she did that. The other memory was her coconut cake which was Cliff's favorite and became mine as well. To her children and grand children please know that she loved you and you were always in her thoughts - sharing with us her love for you. As you go through life remember the times you spent together and hopefully you will share that love with your families.

I am SO VERY sorry to hear of Shelly's passing. Your relationships went well beyond sisters-in-law and aunt/niece. She was always a bright, positive light no matter what she was going through. I will miss my dinners with both of the Shelleys. I know she will be missed by so many friends and family. The only silver lining is that I'm sure she is reunited with her beloved Clifford. May she Rest In Peace.

Then your trips to Ocean City with the Steel family was always your favorites. I am sure Clifford was waiting for Shel with open arms, and so is my Sherrie.

Eventually Cliff became a realtor and instead of being a client we were colleagues. They always felt like dear friends. When we ran into one another in the community we spent time getting caught up, her caring ways were so sincere. She was beautiful inside and out! May her memory be a blessing.

Shelly fought so valiantly for many years. “ Aunt Shelly” will never ever be forgotten. My heart is so heavy. Sending our deepest sympathy and love to the Rudo family. She is now reunited with her beloved Clifford. Rest In Peace my dear Shelly. May happy memories sustain
Matt, Adam, Sara, Jackson, Shelley and Laurie , Andrea, Cheryl and Jen, and all , during this very difficult time. We love you all dearly. The

Dear Andrea, Lori, Matt, Adam, and children, Paul and I were so saddened by Shelly’s passing. I have so many memories of our times together as children and the fun we had at each other’s homes, and am struck by how much your description of her hospitality reminds me so much of that of her dear parents. May her memory be a blessing to all of you, as she reunites with Cliff.

Matthew, Andrew, Andrea, Lori & family,
I am in shock seeing that gorgeous face on this site this morning. The last we spoke Shelly had told me she was going thru Heath issues.
Not wanting to talk about anything except if it was positive & sharing stories of her sons & grandkids, whom she was so lovingly proud of.
We used to share birthday celebrations & I was always moved of how Shelly approached day to day life. Always calm~caring & sweet as sugar, with a wonderful sense of humor.
I’ll miss you She’ll & hope you can be with Cliff again ❤️ To her family, my heart & soul aches for you. Shelly was a ‘One of a kind’ personality & will be missed by anyone that she touched.
Sending my love to her son’s & family.
Life isn’t fair at times. This time they took a sweet & kind beauty too soon.
I am so sorry,
Love, A

Shelly and Cliff were regulars at Beth El’s Friday night services and Shelly continued to come to Beth El after Cliff passed. Her sweet smile and kind words brought a warmth to all of us. When we reconvene, her absence will leave a hole in the Friday night community’s heart, certainly in mine. May her memories bring you comfort.
