Ruth enjoyed playing bridge, hand and foot, painting, and traveling, so much so that she had visited 47 of the 50 United States; Maui, Hawaii was her favorite destination. She was a history buff, who enjoyed reading about and touring Civil War battlefields. Above all, she loved spending time with her family, Ruth will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Ruth is survived and lovingly remembered by her children, Sherrill Anne Morrison of Marion, Iowa, and Scott Cody Stacy of Westminster, Maryland; four grandchildren, Shawn Cody Stacy, Carolyn Ruth Stacy, Bonnie Anne (Jacob) Lieb, and Keith Irvine Stacy; brother, Albert “Frank” Franklin (Donna) Anderson; brother-in-law, Richard “Dick” Maiers; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Keith in 2019; siblings, Mary Evelyn Anderson, Lois Mae Anderson, Jean Marie Jackson, Charles William Anderson, Carl “Lee” Leroy Anderson, and Emma “Alice” Irene Maiers.

The family would like to thank the Unity Point Hospice team for making Mom’s passing as peaceful as could be.
