Marlys L. Rude, 76, Walcott, passed away on Monday, May 20, 2013 at Sanford Palliative Care, Fargo after a courageous 3 year battle with cancer.  She was born on March 10, 1937 to Preston and Margaret (Nelson) Heglie in Breckenridge, MN. 

She grew up in Walcott, ND and graduated from Walcott High School.  Following graduation, she attended Interstate Business College and received a degree in Bookkeeping.   She began her career at Anchor Casualty Insurance and later worked at Reinhart Brothers.  While at Anchor Casualty, she met Rayder E. Rude and they were married on May 11, 1957 at Walcott Lutheran Church in Walcott.  She worked for 26 years at the Harvest States Cooperative Elevator until her retirement.

Marlys was a wonderful cook and baker.  In her spare time she loved to read and play card games.  As a longtime member of Walcott Lutheran, she was an active member of the church and participated in Ladies Aid.  She particularly enjoyed attending countless baseball games of her grandsons.  She always looked forward to her monthly lunches with her close friends.  Her sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Rayder; sons, Rob (Colleen), Fargo, Randy, Walcott, Ron, Marion, IA; grandchildren, Riley (Jennie), Tim, and Nicholas; brothers, Jeff (Claire), Keith (Delores), and Mike (Denise) Heglie; and numerous nieces and nephews.
