Vicky S. Rudock


Aug. 9, 1960-Jan. 20

Born in Indiana, Vicky moved to Colorado while in high school. She was the definition of a true Pagosan, and a fine example of a hardy woman. From her years as deputy treasurer for the county, to her personal life, she was a woman that many called “Mom.” Co-workers, friends and neighborhood children came to her for motherly advice and care. She was stubborn, hard-headed and strong-willed, and she lived life in her own manner. Life may have made her that way; perhaps that is the way she made life. 

She raised two fine children, Jeremiah and Randell, who are making her proud every day. She has two devoted grandchildren, who carry her memory and are the living embodiment of her tenacious spirit. 

Vicky’s spirit and indomitable personality will surely reverberate for generations to come. Whenever a mother is needed, or comfort sought, her light will shine through. Be it a smile or a hug, a smack in the head or a kick in the pants: what Vicky gave was what was needed, nothing more, nothing less. 

Vicky is preceded in death by her parents, Joe Truman Netherton and Callie Netherton, and her sister, Tanya Jo Queen. She is survived by her husband, Randall Rudock; her brother, Joe T. Netherton (Tracy); her children, Jeremiah Netherton (Jenna) and Randell Rudock; grandchildren Annabeth and Abraham Netherton; and many loving nieces and nephews. 

In lieu of flowers, please say a kind word to a stranger or offer a safe haven for a lost soul. 

“May your heart always be joyful, may your song always be sung, and may you stay forever young.”
