In memory of
LaVerne Rudibaugh Chesapeake - LaVerne Castello Rudibaugh passed away peacefully on April 13, 2017, with her loving family by her side. She is survived by husband Richard Jay Rudibaugh. LaVerne was preceded in death by her first husband John Dewey Castello Sr., and her sister Helen Murray. LaVerne and John had five children: Charlyne C. Madden (Doug); John D. Castello Jr. (Linda Ryan); Larry L. Castello (Peggy); Ann C. Moore (David); Eddie H. Castello. A devoted wife and mother, LaVerne doted on her 13 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Some knew LaVerne for her strong faith and the 25 years spent as an educator in the Chesapeake school system. Most knew her to be donning a beautiful hat and shagging on the dance floor. "I'd rather dance than eat," she'd often say. A member of the Red Hat Club, LaVerne's positivity and energy fueled a life in motion in which she was also a real estate maven, piano lover, quilter and bank wizard with a keen sense of style. The funeral service will be conducted at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, April 20, 2017 at Oman Funeral Home & Crematory, 653 Cedar Road, Chesapeake. The interment will follow in Chesapeake Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Wednesday at the funeral home. Friends are invited to sign the online guest book at www.omanfh.com
