Carmen June Roudabush

06/19/2023

Carmen June Roudabush, age 93 of Lowell, passed away peacefully on June 19, 2023, at Blodgett Hospital. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandma, and great grandmother; her family were her pride and joy. She married the love of her life Virgil Roudabush on July 31, 1948, and was looking forward to their 75th anniversary. Her primary job was in advertising and proof reading at Buyers Guide of Lowell. She also was a bus driver for Lowell Area Schools and worked at the Lowell Antique Mall. Carmen volunteered many hours with Lowell Historical Society and Lowell Showboat. She enjoyed playing games like Aggravation, Bingo, and cards and was a long-time member of her Local Card Club where she seldom missed the monthly gathering. Carmen loved cruises, winters in Florida, attending Milling Company Conventions, and staying in touch with her classmates from LHS class of 1948, and she was especially proud of her hometown of Lowell. She loved all dogs, especially Chico. To describe Carmen in one word, one would have to say “Love”. She had a positive attitude and never met a stranger. She will be missed by so many and leaves a hole in the hearts of those who loved her.

 

She was preceded in death by her son, Sam Roudabush; granddaughter-in-law, Melissa Roudabush; great-grandson, Logan Roudabush; her parents, Lewis & Bertha Powell; and her siblings, Evelyn Powell, Winifred Snieder, Lloyd Powell, Margaret Peckham, David Powell.

 

Survived by her husband of 75 years, Virgil Roudabush; son, Joel (Brenda) Roudabush; daughter-in-law, Bonnie Roudabush; grandsons, John Roudabush, Mike (Joy) Roudabush, Tom (Jill) Roudabush; granddaughter, Susan (Chad) Bell; great-grandchildren, Cassie, Jack, Eddie, Sarah, Jenna, Olivia, Isabella, Aaron, Carson, Ethan, Andrew; and many dear nieces and nephews.

  1. My Great GrandAunt Carman who I never met but talked on the phone with when she called me out of the blue and told me she was the daughter of my great grandfather. What a surprise and welcome phone conversation, I wish I was able to travel up and meet Virgil and Carman. Rest in Peace.
