Ruth Sholes

Ruth Sholes, nee Kuechle, was born to eternal life on Saturday, April 29, 2006.

She was the beloved wife of the late Lester C. Sholes; loving mother of Joan (Harold) Grothman; cherished grandmother of State Sen. Glenn Grothman, Grant (Laurie) Grothman, Pamela (Tim) McGuire and Patricia (Mark) Hoggatt; proud great-grandmother "Oma" of Erik and Amanda Grothman, Matthew and Megan McGuire and Emily and Katherine Hoggatt; dear sister "schwester" of Bets Drenk and the late Oliver Kuechle; other relatives and friends.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Charles and Anna Kuechle.

Ruth was totally devoted to her husband, daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She loved to cook and give presents to her family.

After her husbandís death, Ruth became a telephone solicitor. Her services were in great demand and she did not retire until her 94th birthday.

She also telephoned for her grandsonís political campaigns in which she took much pride.

Ruth lived at home until her death, and her cheerful disposition will be missed by all.
