Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: “Never trust anyone completely but God. Love people, but put your full trust only in God.” –Lawrence Welk–

Betty’s trust was rewarded as she passed into the arms of the Lord Monday, November 27, 2017 from Kingston of Ashland. She was 92.

Elizabeth “Betty” Kudrak was born October 10, 1925 to parents Joseph & Katherine (Schmidt) Hager in Mansfield. Betty graduated from Mansfield Senior High with the class of 1943.

Betty worked at Mansfield Tire and Rubber, where she worked for over 32 years in the accounts payable department until retiring.

She was a member at Ontario Christian Fellowship and was very involved in church activities. She always enjoyed going out with her Tappen Girls Lunch Bunch and the Mansfield Tire Ladies Lunch Club.

Betty took pleasure in listening to gospel and polka music and could be found having the Lawrence Welk show on T.V. even for the grandkids. Betty will be best remembered for her baking skills, particularly the cookies that she would make during the holidays.

She is survived by sons John (Mary Ann) Kudrak of Lexington, David (Mary) Kudrak of Mansfield and Robert (Denise) Kudrak of Mansfield; grandchildren Mark (Debi) Carroll, Erik Kudrak, Kathryn (Doug) Edwards, Alyson (Josh) Beers, Ashley (Daren) Sowers and Sarah Kudrak; great-grandchildren Emma, Cameron, Madelyn, Roman, Isla and Ezra

She was preceded in death by her parents and her siblings Joseph Hager, Mathias Hager, Henry Hager, Julia Warga, Rosemary Shisler and Jack Hager.

The Kudrak family will receive friends Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10-11 a.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service honoring Betty’s life will begin immediately at 11 a.m. Elder Jim Haring will speak. Burial will follow in Oak Grove Memorial Park.

  • Dear Family of Betty Kudrak,

    She was a very special person, who I met when she first came to our church a number of years ago. A smile was always on her face, with a happy countenance, and always seemed upbeat. When we visited her at Elmcroft, she was the same, and loved to talk and share stories. At a service there at Elmcroft one Sunday when we were visiting, she gave out a number to sing, and loved the singing.

    Also, she was a member of our Small Group that met on Sunday afternoons once or twice a month, and always enjoyed the fellowship within that group. We will miss her, with her faith in the Lord, and good sense of humor.

    May God bless all of her family,

    Angie Haring (for my husband Jim also)
