Ruth Marie Spurr, formerly of Midland, died at the age of 88 years old on September 22, 2018.

She was born September 24, 1929 in Lincoln Park, Michigan and moved to Midland in 1947. She was the daughter of George D. and Celine Horton. She came to Midland after high school and entered Nurses Training offered at Midland Hospital. She became an LPN and found her niche working with new mothers in the postpartum care unit at Midland Hospital, before retiring after more than 30 years of service. She loved teaching new mothers how to care for their little bundles of joy and themselves. She married Brian in 1951 and together they raised three children, Selena (Nelson) Bolyard, Crystal Spurr, and John (Theresa) Spurr. Surviving are her sister, Margaret T. Hupman, daughter Selena Bolyard, son John Spurr, Grandchildren, Travis Stech, Sam Bolyard, Monica Bolyard, and Shanna Stech, and great-granddaughter Reina. Also surviving are siblings in law and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her remaining siblings including sister Doris earlier this year. Ruth attended the Christian Celebration Center and was active in the church for many years before moving to Portage, Michigan in 2015. She loved her Lord and spent time encouraging others in their walk with the Lord. The family thanks Bickford Assisted Living in Portage, Michigan for their care of Ruth in her final years.

Funeral service for Ruth will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 29th, 2018 from the Christian Celebration Center, 6100 Swede Ave. Ruth’s family will receive friends at the funeral home on Friday from 4 – 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until time of service. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider Frances B. Mayhew Nursing Education Fund and Vada B. Dow Memorial Toy Fund.
