WASM remembers Annette Rudy



It is with great sadness that WASM learns of the passing of Annette Rudy, long time WASM member. As Annette Wolfstein-Joseph says, “Annette Rudy was a member of WASM for a number of years. She served on the board when I was still on it and we were two of the three Annette’s on the board at that time. She was a very gracious and lovely person”.
Please visit Paperman’s to leave a message of condolence:
