Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — Ruth Anne Tyler, 86, of Cam­bridge, MD, peace­fully left the life of her fam­ily on Sun­day, Oct. 23, 2016, at Coastal Hos­pice at the Lake, Sal­is­bury.

Born Aug. 9, 193,0 in Staunton, Va., she was a daugh­ter of the late Mar­jorie Vir­ginia Baker Long and Wal­ter Willis Long. As a young child, the fam­ily re­lo­cated to Dorch­ester County.

Ruth had worked as a wait­ress in sev­eral of the lo­cal eater­ies but was best known for her years of ser­vice at the for­mer Shoal’s Restau­rant. A strong willed and de­ter­mined woman, a trait she got from her mother Ruth, was the one who kept the fam­ily to­gether. Her sib­lings and then her fam­ily al­ways looked to her for help and guid­ance in their life.

Sur­viv­ing are her daugh­ters: Bar­bara Hum­mer Rolf (Richard) and Molly Kay Spicer, all of Cam­bridge; sis­ter, Nel­lie How­ell; grand­sons: Ward Evan Fish­paw (Deb­bie), Ar­rick Rolf, and Kevin Rolf; great grand­chil­dren: Made­line Marie Fish­paw, Evan Brian Fish­paw, Bran­dyn Rolf (Robin), Stephanie Wind­sor (James), Ricky Elzey, Avery Ke­nard and Madi­son Re­nee Rolf; great-great grand­chil­dren: Eve­lyn Wind­sor, James Wind­sor, Brook­lyn Rolf and Pay­ton Elzey, along with many nieces and neph­ews.

Pre­ced­ing her in death, be­sides her par­ents, was an in­fant daugh­ter, Donna Lee Hum­mer that died shortly af­ter birth; five sis­ters; two broth­ers; and five half sib­lings.

At Ruth’s re­quest, no for­mal ser­vices will be held. An in­for­mal me­mo­rial ser­vice will be an­nounced at a later date.

Do­na­tions in me­mory of Ruth can be made to Molly Spicer, c/o BB&T Bank, 601 Cru­sader Road, Cam­bridge, MD 21613.

Ar­range­ments en­trusted to New­comb and Collins Fu­neral Home, P.A.
