KAPLAN, Ruth Lillian (nee Geffen)


July 28, 2013 12:44 AM

Nov. 6, 1921 - July 8, 2013

Our beloved Ruth passed away peacefully in Santa Barbara. Throughout her life, she lived by a simple creed: "I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it. For I shall not pass this way again."

Ruth treated everyone with dignity, friendship and kindness, and her devotion to family was unsurpassed. She was truly one-of-a kind and will be greatly missed.

Preceded in death by her devoted husband Oscar, mother Ida, sister Estelle, and brother Ralph, she leaves behind her three children; Barbara (Amir), Ed (Grace) and Ellen (Perry), grandchildren Dan (Kate), Lia (Kevin), Zack, Jake, Hank, Aaron and Emily, great grandchild, Ben, many loving nieces, nephews and countless friends.

A celebration of Ruth?s life will be held Saturday, Aug. 17, 1:00-4:00, at the University Club in Pasadena. You may honor Ruth's memory by making a donation to the charity of your choice.
