Ruth Marie Holets, 70, of Chatfield, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on March 28, 2015 at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Methodist Campus in Rochester.

Ruth was born May 25, 1944 in Stewartville to Lawrence and Margaret “Dolly” (Jacobson) Zincke. She graduated from Chatfield High School in 1962. On October 27, 1962 she married Earl Jacob Holets. The couple made their home on a dairy farm near Fountain.

In addition to being a busy farm wife, she was a devoted mother and grandmother and she worked at Root River State Bank. She was employed at Root River State Bank for 38 plus years and recently retired as Vice President, working in agricultural lending. When she wasn’t working she enjoyed reading, being outdoors taking care of her gardens, spending time with her family, and most of all, caring for her seven grandchildren.

Ruth is survived by her husband, Earl, of Chatfield; children: Melissa (Roger) Woltz of Chatfield, Jennifer (Hank) Peeters of Chatfield, and Gregory (Tracy) Holets of Fountain.; seven grandchildren: Kayla, Haley, Brady, Mitchell, Benjamin, Jacob, & Boone; her mother, Margaret “Dolly” Zincke, of Chatfield; siblings: Judith Weivoda, David (Amy) Zincke, and Kathryn (Pat) Hanson; and many nieces and nephews also survive.

Ruth is preceded in death by her father, Lawrence.

The family would like to thank Dr. Lacey and her staff for the excellent care she received at the Mayo Clinic during her 12 year battle with cancer.

The visitation was held from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Wednesday April 1 at Riley Funeral Home in Chatfield. A private family burial will take place at Chatfield Cemetery at a later date.
