Ruth Irene Weiss passed away quietly Sunday, Oct. 19, 2008, at age 94.

She was the beloved wife of the late Sherman W. Weiss; dear mother of Larry (Amy) Weiss; and loving grandmother of Michael (Deanna) Weiss, Bryan (Kathy) Weiss, Kevin (Bobette) Weiss and Eric (Janette) Weiss. She is also survived by five great-grandsons and seven great-granddaughters.

Ruth graduated in 1933 from River Falls Normal School (now the University of Wisconsin-River Falls) in elementary education and taught in Belmont and later in Hayward, where she was recognized as having a special gift for helping kids who struggled with their lessons. She was very active in the First Congregational Church, participating in choir and Ladies’ Aid. She was an avid gardener, a lover of birds and nature. After living in Hayward for 46 years, Ruth and her husband moved to Waukesha County.

Her family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Oak Hill Village and Wilkinson Woods who did so much to enrich her life.
