Symbols defined inside Modules will have $nnnn appended to their names.

Rules of thumbs I use: Do not return symbols defined inside Module
back to the caller. To do what you want, pass these symbols along
with the other call parameters. This way, these symbols will be used
inside the Module.

Also, no need to use Return. By default, the last expression value
is the one returned from a Module. Just make sure there is no
";" at the end of the expression.

predState[rg_, rp_, rh_, Mg_, Mp_, Mh_, g_, p_, q_] :=
   Module[{parmList3woC, parmListND3woC, A, B, Rb, Rc, solND},

    parmListND3woC = {A -> Mg/rg, B -> Mp/rg, C -> Mh/rg, Rb -> rp/rg, Rc -> rh/rg};
     NDSolve[{Derivative[1][g][t] == g[t]*(1 - g[t] - p[t] - q[t]) - A*g[t]*g[t] /.
        parmListND3woC, Derivative[1][p][t] == Rb*p[t]*(1 - p[t] - q[t]) -
          B*p[t]*g[t] /. parmListND3woC, Derivative[1][q][t] ==
         Rc*q[t]*(1 - q[t]) - C*q[t]*g[t] /. parmListND3woC, g[0] == 0.5,
       p[0] == 0.5, q[0] == 0.5}, {g, p, q}, {t, 0, 1000}]
