Obituary for Ruth Ellen Meyer

Ruth Ellen Meyer, 100, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at her home in Dubuque, Iowa.
Ruth was born January 1st, 1918 in Midland Michigan. She was the daughter of William and Caroline (Schrieber) Sasse.

On August 2nd, 1941, she was united in marriage to her one true love, Harry Lewis Meyer. Ruth and Harry raised three children together; Harry Meyer Jr. of Midland, MI, Sally Wray of Sanford, MI, and Kimberly Van Iten of Dubuque, IA.

Ruth completed cosmetology school and was employed at McCandless, for some time. Ruth had been an active member at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Midland, MI. She enjoyed traveling with her husband, especially to California to see family. Ruth was known for her good fortune on the slot machines, and a lucky hand at Skip-Bo. She was an expert in the kitchen, and enjoyed spoiling her family with her homemade applesauce, baked beans, pies, and the list goes on. She always looked forward to visiting with friends and family over a hot cup of coffee and a card game. Ruth will be remembered for her valuable advice, keen sense of humor, love of sweets, & generous heart.

A special thanks goes out to her daughter Kim, grandson Robert, and the incredible staff at Hospice of Dubuque, for the care and compassion they gave Ruth.

Ruth is survived by her 3 children, 9 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren, and last but not least her beloved Schnauzer, Prince. Preceding Ruth in death was her loving husband, Harry.

A private ceremony will be held in Midland, MI, on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
