Ruth was my mother, Sonja's dear friend, a fellow Veteran. Ruth even modeled the first women's naval suit She was to attend an Naval bash in Wash. DC., a honoring of women event, but was unable to due to health. It was rescheduled. I revall my mother wanting to drive her cross country there if she could not fly. It just did not pan out for Ruth to go at all. Her doctor had put her on Eloquist, which caused internal bleeding, made her very sick. She rallied from that incident, but we don't know what further transpired. My mother did not hear of her passing until after the fact; but she had sensed she was gone. My mother spoke to her last in early October. Ruth said after their last chat, she was to soon return her call, but it didn't happen. My mother then called again, but there was no answer. It was even later confirmed she had passed. My mother loved her feisty personality, a very good person, well dressed, quite put together. She painted too. Ruth made her way out west, joining the Navy, she came from a Pennsylvania Dutch family. Ruth was married twice, had one son that predeceased her, surviving her are another son and a grandson. I wish I had more details to write a well deserving and proper tribute for Ruth, and my mother's sake. I will have to be satisfied with this sparse one bc everybody deserves to be remembered. Ruth was here 98 years and a bit more than 7 mos. That is a good long life haul. Thank you for your naval service and kindnesses extended Ruth. You cetainly did your part here, you can rest in sweet peace. My mother certsinly misses you. She would've been there again, as before, if not for her health appts. at that particular time in Oct. It was she that was not feeling well. You can be sure, when her time comes, she will look for your spirit.
