Co­hen, Ruth

Chicago Sun-Times - - IN MEMORIAM -

Re­mem­ber­ing our mother Ruth Co­hen z”l who died 43 years ago today (2 Av) age 37. Born in Israel, Ruthie’s fam­ily moved to Mon­treal then Chicago after her fa­ther, Ernst, died. After grad­u­at­ing North­west­ern (B.A. Lan­guages), Ruthie worked at the Cana­dian Con­sulate in Chicago where she met our fa­ther Sid, the love of her life, who was there on busi­ness from Ottawa. In 1964, they were mar­ried in Chicago by Rabbi Her­man Schaal­man z”l. Al­ways en­er­getic, Ruthie spoke 5+ lan­guages and was an ac­tive down­hill skier and ten­nis player. Ruthie loved paint­ing and left us beau­ti­ful oils and wa­ter­colours that today hang in our homes and re­mind us of her artis­tic imag­i­na­tion and creative eye. Lov­ingly re­mem­bered by us, her cousin Howard Wal­ton & fam­ily, and her ever-de­voted Chicagolan­d friends. Her mem­ory con­tin­ues as in­spi­ra­tion for her grand­chil­dren Ruthie, Billy, Jax, David, Olivia, and Rachel. ~ by Steven, Brian, and Susie
