Preceding Ruth in death is her husband; parents; a son, Ric Waters; her siblings, David Hoppa, Bobby Hoppa, Janie Manthey, and Doris Miller.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. in St. Mary Catholic Church, 730 Madison Ave., Omro, Wisconsin, with Fr. Tom Long and Sr. Pam Biehl officiating.
