Paul and Rose Rudko owned and operated Rudrose Construction for many years, building homes in Winnipeg, as well as shopping centres around the city.
After Paul’s death, Rose gave generously to many organizations, including The Children’s Wish Foundation, Manitoba and Nunavut Chapter.
Children’s Wish has been the beneficiary of nearly $1 million from Rose, with $725,000 in donations over a 5 year period, and an additional $216,000 most recently from her estate. Rose is the single, highest individual donor in Children’s Wish history.
Rose was a gentle and compassionate woman who cared about the community she lived in and, especially for the well-being of children. She would visit the Chapter often and spread humour and joy in the stories and life experiences she shared.
Rose has since passed away, but her memory and legacy will live on in the many that loved her and those who continue to benefit from her gracious generosity and the special experience of many wishes granted.
