February 10, 1926March 18, 2018

On March 18, 2018, the Angels watched in awe as Mom opened her Beautiful Butterfly Angel Wings in Heaven. Predeceased by her husband Charlie and son Bob, Mom leaves to mourn her children Wayne (Moira), Jim (Pauline), Ken (Joan), Vicki and Gordon. Gramma leaves to mourn nine grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Mom was also loved by many friends and she was known as Mom to them as well.

Daughter of Augusta and William Dreger, she was born on February 10, 1926. Ruth was predeceased by sisters Minnie, Norma, Shirley, Joan, Alma, Viola and Mildred. She is survived by sisters Eileen and Donna, and brothers Walter (Diane) and Gordon (Darlene).

Pauline, where would our family be without you in it? Your commitment to Mom for the best care undoubtedly allowed Mom to live a happier life. Your weekly visits with groceries or anything Mom needed along with the friendship you and Mom had was so special. Thank you a million times for everything. We love you so much.

Nicky, there are no words to express our gratitude for always being there for Gramma. Wednesday night yahtzee games and running errands, you are Grammas sweet Angel.

Special Thank you to Dr. Francois Malan for years of loving care for Mom, to Dr. Steven Rollheiser for your gentle and comforting ways and also to the staff and volunteers of Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home. You all go far beyond in giving the gentlest loving care at such a difficult time. Thank you all!

In lieu of flowers, please donate to M.W.S. Hospice Home.

A memorial will be held at a later date
