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.
