Judeiann Celine Dudman
November 22, 1939- October 7, 2021
Judeiann Dudman of Port Republic peacefully passed away October 7th, 2021, with her family by her side. Judei was born in Chicago, IL to Marion and Josephine Stoj. She was lovingly known as Busia (Polish for Grandma) to her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many friends. In her younger years, Judei worked as a finance officer then opened her own store, “Mom & Me”, selling perfumes and beauty products. After her husband Bill passed, she moved to Port Republic and became involved as a volunteer with St. John Vianney, The Office on Aging, and Calvert Middle School. Judei loved meeting The Rosary Beads Ladies weekly at Bob Evans for a fun lady’s lunch. Her most entertaining hobby was watching wrestling, which she started with her father as a young girl. When the wrestlers didn’t get it right, she had no problem telling them how to win. Judei and Bill were blessed with 5 children: Julei Darrach (Steve), Will Dudman (Lori), Audrey Beeson (Ernie), Shannan Robert (Lionel), and Amanda Mejia (Olvin), 13 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. If you remember anything about Judei, remember what her father taught her which she lived by: “Go out every day and make one person smile.” Rest in Peace Mom, Busia. We love you.
