Ruth was a dedicated wife and mother. She loved her husband, children and grandchildren fiercely and embraced every moment with them. While Ruth was a retired business woman who once owned and operated the Rittman division of Aqua Pure Bottled Water with her husband, the title she most cherished was Grandma. She also loved her extended family deeply and enjoyed cooking for everyone; she hosted many big holiday family gatherings over the years.
Ruth was a woman of strong faith living out her favorite verse Psalm 46:10 “Be Still and Know that I am God”, trusting God to handle her life and ultimately her death. She was a Christian who shared her testament as freely as she shared her love. Ruth was a member of Northside Christian Church and attended the Peace River Baptist Church in Punta Gorda Florida during the winter months.
