Ruth Henzler Euller
April 16, 1923 — Jan. 2, 2016
Ruth Henzler Euller was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on April 16, 1923. She died on January 2, 2016, in hospice care in Tomah after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her husband, Carlton, who died in January 2013. She is survived by five children, Kurt (Suzanne) Euller of Sparta, Lynne (Steve) Reich of Delafield, Steven (Nancy Roehr) Euller of Minneapolis, Minn., Karen Euller of Lake Oswego, Ore., and Evelyn Euller of Rochester, Minn. Ruth also had 13 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Ruth lived in Buffalo until she married in 1945. She and Carl then lived in East Aurora, N.Y., for many years until they moved to Oconomowoc and later Beloit. When Carl retired in 1982, they moved to Adams, where Ruth resided until shortly before her death.
Ruth was an avid seamstress in her early years and always a great cook known for her homemade pies. Later in Adams, she joined a bowling team and then began oil painting. She was really an artist at heart and painted several choice pieces that are cherished by her family. She was always curious and never stopped being engaged with the world around her. Her favorite expression was, “Oh, wow!” But the theme of her life was her love for her family. On her last Christmas, she was pleased to see her children and know they were all safe. Her legacy to her family is her exemplary life as a wife, daughter, sister, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.
As Ruth wished, a private family gathering will take place. No public service is planned.
