Theda P. Raudenbush

Theda Paxton Raudenbush, 94, of Staunton passed away Sunday, May 4, 2014.

The daughter of Nema A. and John G. Paxton, Theda was a lifelong resident of Staunton. An avid gardener and decorator, Theda was admired for her creativity and skill for making everything around her beautiful. She was blessed with a deep compassion for all living things and a quick wit that kept her family and friends laughing with her. She often said that laughing was one of the healthiest things a person could do, and she was very healthy indeed.

Theda was preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert J. Raudenbush; her parents; her brother, John G. Paxton Jr.; and her sister, Regina P. Ham.

Family surviving to celebrate her life are her daughter, Paula Raudenbush of Fredericksburg; one niece, Cindy H. Glenn and her husband, Don, of Waynesboro; one nephew, Michael Coiner and his wife, Maryrose, of Massachusetts; two great nieces; three great-nephews; and two great-great-nieces.

There will be a graveside service at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 8, at Thornrose Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to a charity of one's choice.

Henry Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Condolences may be sent to the family at henryfuneral home.net.
