In addition to being a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, Ruth worked in the pediatric department at St Joseph’s Hospital for 20 years. She had a musical ear for every instrument she picked up. She was the queen of hospitality and no one ever left her table hungry. Her interests included music, garage saling, bowling, cooking, reading and theme parties.
God gifted her with a heart of compassion for those with special needs. This compassion has made an impact that has extended well beyond her family. The desire of her heart was that her children, grandchildren and beyond would walk with the Lord all the days of their lives.
She is survived by her husband of almost 72 years, Lavern(Tony) and their children, Linda (Gary) Russell, Kenneth(Terri) Reigel, Wayne(Nancy) Reigel, Janice K. Reigel, Jane (Robert) Hocking, Jill Reigel, and Amy (Scott) Cattanach. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
