Barbara Hauter Rudd Ankenbruck, 81, of Moneta, Va., left us on Monday morning, November 17, 2008, surrounded by her five children. Born on January 26, 1927, in El Paso, Texas, as Helen Barbara Hauter, she chose to use Barbara as her given name. She attended Purdue University, graduating in 1947, where she met her first husband, Gordon W. Rudd II, an engineer and the father of her five children. In 1991, Gordon Rudd died and several years later Barbara married Herman Ankenbruck who had six children of his own. For the past 15 years, they have made their home at Smith Mountain Lake. Barbara Rudd Ankenbruck is survived by her husband, Herman Ankenbruck; her brother, George Hauter; her children, Gordon Rudd III, Gayle Rudd Merrill, Gary Rudd, Winky Rudd Vaughn, and Gina Rudd French; 12 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Well read and a teacher by education, Barbara was actively involved with the education of her family. She saw all of her children graduate from Virginia Tech and several go on to graduate school. Barbara attended Trinity Ecumenical Parish and was active in her community. She participated in several neighborhood organizations, bridge clubs, and book clubs. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the Trinity Ecumenical Parish or Moneta Smith Mountain Lake Library, P.O. Box 775, Moneta, Va. 24121, which will honor Barbara and the donor with an inscription in books the library will purchase in her memory. A service open to the public will be held for her 2 p.m. on Friday, November 28, 2008, at Trinity Ecumenical Parish, 40 Lakemount Drive, Moneta, Va.
