Ruth played violin and piano, and she enjoyed singing with her dad, sister and friends. She attended Herbert (Sask.) Bible School 3 years, graduating in 1947. Ruth loved her calling as a farmer’s wife, working side by side with Waldemar in Main Centre, Sask. She enjoyed being involved in church and taught Sunday school many years. She was active in the community: curling, picnicking, visiting friends. Ruth had the gift of hospitality and enjoyed serving guests, cooking, baking, crocheting, canning and gardening. In 1984, Ruth and Waldemar moved to Swift Current, Sask., but continued to farm for many years. In 2005, they moved to Saskatoon, where they attended West Portal Church and enjoyed being close to their children. After 58 years of marriage, Waldemar died. Ruth had a strong faith and a determination to regain her health, but God took her home.
