Marilyn had many nicknames such as Swede, M, Miss M, Auntie M, and M'er. She was known for her love of cooking, making candy buckeyes and zucchini bread were a specialty. She enjoyed decorating her home which was always filled with fresh flowers she cut from her garden. She was a dedicated Ohio State Buckeye and Cleveland Browns football fan, Coca-Cola drinker, and appreciated good chocolate. She enjoyed listening to music, playing cards, gambling trips with friends, and was quite good at picking winning horses. Marilyn was always very proud of her Columbus Police Captain Father Robert Ruddock and Brother Lt. David Ruddock and greatly respected their work. She loved her many friends and always made them feel special. Her visits to Buckeye Lake with Uncle Joe and Rick were special times. The family of Marilyn would like to thank the Hospice team from Mount Carmel; KaDai, Kim, Jamie, Wayne/Wally and especially Rachel for the compassion and support. Many thanks also the caregivers in our home; Di and JT, Bill and Eileen, Tedd and Ellen, Brenda, Tammy Jane, Elizabeth and Ruthie, Dave and Lynda, Becky, Lisa and Ellen, whom I could not have made it without their help and support. Marilyn would also like to thank Dr. John Worman and his staff for making Bella strong again.
