Ruth Mary Young

Ruth found joy in the little day-to-day traditions that she made for herself. Whenever she could, Ruth would find and shop at the yard sales and antique stores that were close by, and would always buy trinkets for the children in her life. With these small tokens of love, Ruth showed her family that she would always be there for them.

Ruth adored gardening. Most of what she grew was green plants, however she always had a soft spot for sunflowers. Ruth was very lucky to have almost 60 loving and happy years with her husband, Anthony. Together they had 5 children, and as time went on they had many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ruth had a special place in her heart for the little ones of the family, and would always take them to play bingo. Please take a bingo card to remember Ruth's loyalty to her family and the love that she shared with them.
