Mae S. Rufert passed away at her home in Folsom on Sept. 29, 2012, following a three-week illness. She was 95 years old.

A native of Georgia, she transferred with the Navy to California in 1943. She and her husband retired from UC Davis to a vineyard in Madera; 10 years later, they relocated to Folsom.

Mae was an avid bridge player and reader of mysteries. For years, when younger, she loved to travel and attend musical theaters. She felt herself fortunate to have a good family, good health, good neighbors, and good friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, William L. Rufert and Brother Gilbert Swords.

She is survived by her children, Mike and Joanne; grandsons Brian, Jeffrey and Kevin; great-grandchildren Evan, Liam and Abigail; and brother Donald Swords of Georgia, as well as one niece and many nephews.

A graveside service was held on Oct. 5 at Lakeside Memorial Lawn. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Orangevale Woman’s Club 916-905-0319.

    Mae was an amazing cook and hostess. Her recipes fill my recipe box. Such as dear southern lady. Sorry for her passing.
