Ruth lived a full and extraordinary life. She was beautiful, kind, giving, loving, very hard working, dedicated, fun to be around, strong willed and always had a great story to share about her life’s experiences. She took pride in her homes, many of which she had designed herself. She loved to travel, talk politics and was even a Whiskey Taster and Taxi Driver long ago. She will be remembered fondly, always in our hearts and missed greatly. During these unprecedented times, services will be private. Thank you to DeJohn Funeral Homes for making the arrangements. A special thank you to Dawn Gardner, Ruth’s friend and caretaker, and to all the Hospice Nurses. Ruth’s eternal resting place will be at All Souls Cemetery in Chardon.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of Ruth to Hospice of the Western Reserve, PO Box 72101, Cleveland, OH 44192. “Don’t cry and be sad because I am gone. Instead celebrate me; for I have lived a full life and truly loved you all!” Arrangements by THE DeJOHN-FLYNN-MYLOTT FUNERAL HOME OF WILLOUGHBY HILLS.
