Ruth was born on December 11, 1923, in St. Louis, MO, the only child of Edna and Daniel Richardson. Preceding her in death were Ruth’s husband of forty years, Nicholas Bosch, Jr., and her husband of thirteen years Raymond Herbst. Ruth has two children, daughter, Terri Rose (husband, Dale) and son, Timothy Bosch (wife, Kathryn). Ruth was a loving grandmother to Daniel Rose, Matthew Bosch (wife, Chelsea) and David Bosch. She was a good friend to many.

Ruth graduated from Bayless High School in 1941 and later attended Miss Hickey’s Secretarial School. Over more than twenty-five years, she held several full-time positions at Storz Surgical Instrument Company. Following her retirement from Storz, Ruth worked part-time at a Hallmark store in Grasso Plaza and volunteered in St. Anthony’s hospice program. She was a member of St. Paul’s Church in Oakville.

Ruth was energetic, feisty, could lose her temper, but she was also quick to forgive. She will be missed by everyone that knew her for her vibrant personality, strong hugs, kisses, and tender encouragement.
