The Rudolph Family is saddened to announce the passing of Clarence and Marlene.

They were longtime residents of Shellbrook and the surrounding area. Clarence and Marlene leave behind a rich legacy of community service.

Marlene was a registered nurse, nursing first at the original Shellbrook clinic and then later at the Shellbrook Union Hospital.

Clarence operated a small family farm south of town and worked in town, most notably for Potts Construction then later spent many years working for the Town of Shellbrook.

Marlene spent her leisure time gardening in her yard, she particularly loved her flowers and enjoyed planning special play dates and picnics with her grandkids. In her retirement, she would often drive senior citizens on shopping excursions or to appointments.

Clarence could often be found with a wrench, a hammer, or a welder in his hand, repairing or building something. In Clarence’s leisure time he enjoyed hanging out with his grandchildren, quadding to the river, and casting a line in hopes to catch some fish.

Clarence and Marlene are survived by Clarence’s sister, Leota Sommerfeld, and Marlene’s sister Bernice Burke; three sons, Brad (Debra), Trent, Lloyd (Cori); as well as their six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
