Marjorie Ann Dudley Cuddy, Daughter of Christopher and Virginia Dudley of Ruthven Iowa passed away on September 09 2020 at the age of 71.
Marge grew up on a farm near Terrill Iowa with her brother Norm where she was also an All State basketball player and graduated from Terrill High School in 1967. After graduation she moved to Spencer Iowa where she married Rich Fellingham and from this union came three children Brad, Kristin and Abby. While raising her three children in Spencer Marge was a top salesperson selling monuments.
On July 4th, 1992 she met the love of her life Dick Cuddy and they were married in November 1992. With this union Marge also gained a son Trent and daughter Jena- that’s the day we all became the Cuddy bunch.
Marge was a great friend and cherished her friendships, she was the greatest host, cook and famous for her baking. She was known for her quick wit and one liners always enjoyed by all. Marge had an incredible generous spirit; she never forgot a birthday or a special occasion. Her capacity for laughter could not be topped. She valued the tradition of a handwritten letter and a hilarious or loving card AND Marge’s LIP KISSES are legendary!
Marge and Dick spent the next 28 years between Iowa and Florida enjoying golfing, traveling, celebrating grandchildren and recently moved back to Ankeny to be closer to family.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband Dick of 28 years, her children and grandchildren: Brad (Cyndi) Fellingham of Olathe KS. and their children Kaeden, Gavin and Avery. Kristin (Jack) Byers of Hartley Ia. and their children Jackson and Ben. Abby Fellingham of West Des Moines Ia. Trent (Kele) Cuddy of Murfreesboro, Tn. with their child Gracie, Jena (Jim) Stepien of Murfreesboro, Tn. with their children Adeline and Quintin and her Brother Norman of Wildwood Florida and her extended family and cherished friends.
Proceeded in death by her parents, Christopher and Virginia Dudley.
We will always carry your memories in our hearts- with Love.
