Letter from Paul Blanford on Passing of Lisa Dudrick

Hello Everyone,

It is with a heavy heart I announce the passing of Lisa Dudrick, a former Fire Police Officer at the Garrettford Drexel Hill Fire Company and a member of both 7th and 8th districts and Delaware County Fire Police Associations. Lisa (and her partner Lynn West) moved to Georgia several years ago. Unfortunately, there are no funds for Lisa to be cremated and transported back to Pennsylvania for burial.

I have been in touch with her brother David, who has started a Go Fund Me account. In lieu of donating to the Go Fund Me account (Go Fund Me charges a percentage of the collected money), I suggest donations be sent to me then I will forward the donations to her brother David directly. Subsequently, anyone wishing to contribute should contact myself, Paul Blandford, at 610-299-2486 with an amount. Any and all contributions would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, Lisa still had her helmet and other fire police items in her apartment. When the funeral home saw this they draped her body with an American Flag as she was being removed from her apartment, it was a very thoughtful tribute.

God bless you all and stay safe,

Paul Blanford
