She was an election judge for many years. She was very involved in school activities as her children were growing up and served as the PTA President. She was always willing to help others any way she could.

Ruth “Meema” was the matriarch of a large family with five children, 15 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, and 23 great-great-grandchildren. Her quiver was full.

She will be missed immeasurable by this family and all of Greeley, having lived in Weld County for 88 years. All who knew her loved her dearly.
