Ruth Bolash Salvatore, 95, who was born Oct. 8, 1913 in Seattle, the daughter of Curtis and Emma Stillwagon, passed away peacefully with family at her side Saturday, Dec. 6, 2008.
Ruth was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Nicholas Church for over 70 years, where she attended daily Mass for most of her life. She was also a member of the Third Order of St. Francis for over 60 years.
She was a devoted wife and mother and raised nine children on Maplewood Avenue in Struthers.
During her long life, Ruth was active in her church, where she founded the Mother’s Club and was a member of its Altar and Rosary Society and choir. She was president of the Struthers Women’s Republican Club and helped organize and run the Struthers Community Center. She enjoyed bowling and golf for many years, playing 18 holes most days, and was proud to note that she scored a hole-in-one even before her husband. She was an avid reader, and enjoyed gardening, sewing, crafts, traveling, daily walks and most of all, animals and nature.
She will be remembered with love by her family and friends as a woman who dedicated her life to her family, her community and her church - a woman with a wry sense of humor who inspired a love of travel, nature, animals in children and grandchildren.
Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, Stephen J. Bolash, whom she married in 1934, and who passed away in 1983; and her husband, Patsy Salvatore, whom she married in 1988, and who passed away in 1992.
