Went peacefully and joyously to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in the early morning of November 10th, 2013.
She was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on December 7, 1921. Throughout her life, Ruth blessed many with her enthusiasm and quick wit. Ruth was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend who was an excellent seamstress, gourmet cook, competitive bridge player and ardent volunteer. Prior to moving to Santa Barbara, from Appleton, Wisconsin in 2002, Ruth drove 20 solo round trips to be with her grandsons!
Ruth is preceded in death by her parents, ex-husband, older sister, brother and grandson, Jordan Tibbetts. She is survived by her daughter Jo (Larry) Tibbetts, grandson Marshall Tibbetts and sister Betty Kratzsch. Her family and special friends will all miss Ruth greatly, but will look forward to being reunited with her in Heaven.
A celebration of her life will be held at Shoreline Community Church on, what would have been her 92nd birthday, Saturday, December 7th at 2:00 in Grace Hall, 935 San Andres, Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers please make contributions to Shoreline Community Church, Philippines Humanity Relief fund.
