Ruth M. Bublitz, 92


Ruth M. Bublitz passed away on Monday, Sept. 23, 2013, at the age of 92 years. Ruth was born on Sept. 6, 1921, in the town of Polk to William “Bill” and Edna (nee Schwantz). Ruth worked at both SK Williams as well as Amity Corp. in West Bend. She then went on to proudly work at Allen Bradley as a drill press operator having retired with more than 30 years of service.

Ruth enjoyed her time at St. Paul’s in Slinger where she was able to engage in church functions including the ladies aide and play dart ball. She always drove Chevrolets, and, in fact, drove her own car until the age of 85 when a lamp post ended her driving career. She also loved collecting Hummel figurines.

Ruth is survived by her children Gerald (Barbara Rohan) and David (Cheryll) and grandchildren Jeremy and Cassandra (fiancé James Basterash). She is further survived by her sister Marion (Walter) Muller, sister-in-law Fern, and many nieces, nephews, relatives and dear friends.
