November 27, 1928 – October 7, 2020
Ruth Landis passed away on October 7, 2020, at the age of 91. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Harvey, and her brother, Arthur. She is survived by her son, Richard, and daughter-in-law, Sandra, as well as her daughter, Caren, and her partner, Becky. She is also survived by her two grandchildren, Daniel and Lisa. Ruth resided in New City, until recently when she moved to North Carolina. She loved her new life and made many new friends. She graduated from NYU when it was uncommon for women to attend college and had an outstanding career as a social worker in Rockland County. Funeral Services will be private due to the current situation. The family plans on having a service at her unveiling next year. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Ruth’s memory may be made to one of her favorite charities – St. Jude’s, Technion and Hadassah.

Caren, Richard and families,
I am so sorry for your loss of your Mom. I have many great memories of visiting at your house; and, both of your parents were always so kind to me. Always beautiful, your Mom never seemed to age. She had a zest for life that was contagious. I’m so glad that in her last years, you were able to spend so much time with her. May all of the love that you shared, help you through this difficult time.
Pat (Wolfie) Kelly
