Ruth passed away peacefully on October 30th in the comfort of her home, with family by her side, at 95 years of age. She was the beloved wife of her late husband Bill for 60+ years, the much loved mother to Karen and her husband George, Diane and Bonnie, and the cherished grandmother to Nicole and her husband Robert, Jason, Dan, Katie and her fiancé Steve.
