Funeral for Ruth Patterson

On Tuesday, October 18 at noon, we will gather at Augustana for Ruth Patterson’s funeral service, remembering her and commending her spirit to God, followed by a committal of her ashes in the memorial garden.

Ruth died on September 30th in hospice at Vitas/Insight. She was 96, and a longtime member of Augustana. Before she became homebound, she was a regular worshiper. She was an avid reader, loved music, and some older members remember her as a fellow worker on the monthly newsletter. Some remember very recently visiting her at home to carol to her during Advent.
