Born July 14, 1944 in Hackensack, New Jersey - Decreased May 14th, 2022
Ruth loved her family and friends and enjoyed life. She was a person of strong faith and kept a positive mental outlook, despite many challenges. When she was able, she volunteered at the Molalla Senior Center and the Meals on Wheels program. Ruth was an avid dog lover and owned many Dachshunds that she adored. One of her other favorite furry friends, was her Giant Schnauzer - Ziggy - with which she participated in Dog Shows while she lived in Dallas, Texas. There she also developed a love of the Dallas Cowboys and anything from the Big D. She loved the fall because it was football season and spent many hours watching the games. During her career in Retail, one of her favorite jobs was as a buyer for Neiman-Marcus. She always had a flair for fashion.
She is survived by her four nieces - Jeannette Hanson, Joyce Caramella, Jessica Coon and Joanne Orengo.
No services are planned at this time. If one would like make a donation in remembrance, the Molalla Senior Center or the National Multiple Sclerosis Society would be good choices.
