I met Marge in the mid 90s at Maplewood healthcare. Her gentle compassion and respect for the elderly is why I remained in healthcare for 30years. She will be fondly remembered as a nurse with a big heart. Thank you Marge for all the smiles you put on our faces.

I met the Ruhland family back in the mid 90's and I have been friends with Andrea for 28 years. Wow how time flies. The Ruhlands are a lovely family and Mrs. Ruhland helped raise great kids with strong values. Mrs. Ruhland will keep her family safe and be a guiding light until they meet again. You will be missed.

I am very sorry for the loss of your wife and mother. I was a classmate of Marge at Rosary Hill College, class of 1960.

Jeannine, Mr. Ruhland and family-
I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Ruhland. Growing up I had the good fortune of becoming very close with Mrs. Ruhland's youngest daughter Jeannine, and as a result Mrs. Ruhland is a part of my childhood memories. I can recall going with Jeannine and her mother to Wegman's; Mrs. Ruhland was shopping for their upcoming trip to the Adirondack Mountains. We were crammed into this little car with bags of groceries shoved in every nook and cranny. I recall the three of us laughing and me thinking I probably should have stayed home!
Jeannine and family- I am keeping all of you, as well as Mrs. Ruhland, in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.
- Karen

When I first met Marge, we had just joined the ski club. I was quite taken with Marge, her unassuming grace and poise, her demure smile, her acceptance of us. Little did I know that my wife had worked with Marge some time ago. I remember on one of our ski picnic outings, my Judy and Marge stood next to each other admiring the panoramic vista, and it seemed to me, they could almost be sisters. Marge was beautiful, both inward and out. We've all been privileged to have been touched by her serene outlook of life and now Heaven has called her home. Thank you Ruhlands, especially you Don, for sharing Marge with us, one of the nicest people anyone could have ever been Blessed with knowing. - Gary W.

I will never forget meeting Marge Ruhland. Marge was the nurse at the Maplewood Nursing home; I was the social worker for her unit. I introduced myself as I was on the first shift and Marge was on the second shift. We had not met previously and I asked if there was anyone or anything I could do for the residents. As Marge was a people person, she laughed at my suggestion, smiled and welcome me to the unit. Marge was a realist as well. We shared long conversations about some of the residents and their unique personalities.
Marge was pleasant, polite, social, and inviting. I got to know her better when I joined our ski club. And, of course, the same welcoming smile and sense of humor. I will miss Marge so much. Marge was one of the reasons our group stayed together, skied together and socialized together. We will never be the same. My sincere sympathies to Don and all of her family. WE WILL MEET AGAIN.

Met Marge in 1952, freshman year at MSM. We've been friends since then. She was a dear friend and I loved her. She was there for me when I lost my husband 4 years ago. She kept checking on me during this pandemic. Last saw her in Nov. I will miss you my friend.

I worked at Maplewood with Marge. She was so nice, she was so kind the residents and staff loved her.
Except one resident- her husband must of had an affair with someone who looked like Marge. when ever she went near this women- she would look at her and start yelling at her. She would point at Marge And say "you, you, you know what you did"
we had to draw the curtains and block her vision. One day Marge turned around and said "trust me your husband is not my type"
We laughed so hard.
My other favorite story of her. We were talking about Christmas and she would say her favorite thing was sitting down on Christmas Eve watching the Albert Finney version of Scrooge and wrap gifts. Every year when I pull out my Christmas videos. That is one of the ones I watch and always remember her saying it was her favorite movie.
