Obituary For Kathleen "Kathy" Faye Fudge
Kathleen “Kathy” Fudge, 89, of Brevard, NC, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2022.
Kathy was born January 28, 1933, in Mansfield, OH. Orphaned at an early age, she and her siblings were raised at the Ohio Pythian Children’s home in Springfield. Kathy worked her way through college and graduated from Wilmington College in Wilmington, OH.
Kathy married Richard “Dick” Fudge on November 17, 1957, and had three children; Jeffrey, Ronald, and Tracy.
In her career, she dedicated herself to the education of grade school children in Ohio, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina. This was something she excelled at and thoroughly enjoyed, as she had a lifelong love for developing children. Even in retirement, she sewed pillows for children’s classrooms and Mission Hospital.
Kathy was a frequent volunteer for women’s shelters and support groups. She loved nature, hiking, crafting, gardening, youth sports, (go Brevard Blue Devils,) and being with her loving family.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Dick Fudge, her children Jeffrey Fudge, Ronald Fudge, and Tracy (Fudge) Hamilton; and her grandchildren Allison Fudge and Austin Fudge.
She was preceded in death by her brothers and sisters, Homer Castor, Lynn Castor, June Castor, Sally (Castor) Regan, and Ron Castor.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Children’s Center of Transylvania County.
All family services will be private.
