Rich Newspaper Article about Mayor Bert E. Rudolph's Funeral - More than 1000 attendees - Cape May Times, Sea Isle City, New Jersey, Friday, May 17, 1940


STROKE IS FATAL - MAYOR RUDOLPH LAID TO REST

More Than 1,000 Attend Rites for Harbor Executive

Stone Harbor - More than 1,000 persons, many of them permanent and summer residents of this resort, attended funeral services Tuesday at 2 p. m. at St Paul's Reformed Episcopal Church, Broad and Venango streets, Philadelphia, for Mayor Bert E. Rudolph, widely known churchman and insurance executive.

Mayor Rudolph, who was in his 49th year, died Saturday at 5:55 a. m., just seven hours after he suffered a stroke here from which he failed to rally. Many of his friends viewed the body Monday evening at the funeral parlors of C. A. Quinby and Sons, 1125 W. Lehigh avenue.


Four Clergymen Officiate at Funeral

Four clergymen officiated at the impressive service. Among them was Rev. Morris Walker, pastor of the Lutheran Community Church of Our Savior here. It was in his car in front of Rev. Walker's parsonage, after Rev. and Mrs. Walker had been given a surprise party which the mayor attended, that Mr. Rudolph suffered the stroke that seven hours later was the cause of his death.

The other clergymen included Dr. Henry H. Trotter, pastor of St. Paul's; Bishop Frank V. C. Cloak, of the Reformed Episcopal Church; and Dr. James, close friend of the deceased and pastor of a Chicago Reformed Episcopal Church.


Bishop Praises 'Titanic' Character

Bishop Cloak, speaking from the pulpit in which Mr. Rudolph had preached on many occasions, as one of Philadelphia's outstanding churchmen, eulogized the later mayor for his 'titanic' Christian character.

A large number of persons journeyed to the Friend's Southwestern Cemetery, 65th and Spruce, where a Masonic service preceded interment.


Stone Harbor Cottager for 28 Years

Mayor Rudolph, who is survived only by his mother, Mrs. J. C. Johnson, maintained a summer residence here with her for 28 years. He was born in Philadelphia and attended Friends Select School. During the World War, he served as a Y. M. C. A. secretary at Camp Lee, Va.

At the time of his death he was vestryman, Junior Warden and secretary-treasurer of St. Paul's, and until his resignation more than a year ago, he served for 20 years as superintendent of the Sunday School. He was treasurer of the New York and Philadelphia Synod of the Reformed Episcopal Church, treasurer of the Home Board of Missions of the entire denomination.


Official of Many Organizations

Mayor Rudolph was president of Life Line League of Philadelphia; chairman of the Board of the Episcopal Endowment Fund of the entire denominations and a member of the general committee.

He was secretary and treasurer of the World Mutual Health and Accident Insurance Co., Philadelphia; secretary and treasurer of the Gibraltar Beneficial Society of Philadelphia, and manager of the Weekly Industrial Department of the National Accident Health Insurance Co., which operates in 20 states. Mr. Rudolph had 300 men under his supervision in the three organizations.

He became acting mayor of Stone Harbor upon the death of Mayor H. Irvin Gerhart February 21st of last year. In August he was appointed, and in November was elected to fill the unexpired one-year term of Mayor Gerhart. He served on Council eight years, the last four of which he was that body's president.
