Ruth was a Medical Lab Technician and had worked at the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital for the last 35 years. She really had a love for music of all kinds. You could often find her in her gardens, taking photographs, reading a book, or simply enjoying her family. Ruth was a woman of strong faith. She was an active member of her church, and her absence will leave a void that will be difficult to fill. However, have faith she is with the Lord.
