“Some­where Over The Rain­bow”

Ruth Geary lived her life with Strength, Beauty & De­ter­mi­na­tion. Ruth was born in Vi­enna dur­ing World War I, fled Aus­tria in 1939 & con­fronted World War II in her new home, Amer­ica. In 1940, Ruth mar­ried Al­bert A. Geary & later had two daugh­ters. Ruth adapted through­out her life by fac­ing each day with a joy & strength that most would never know. While Ruth bore the pains of her losses from the war in pri­vate, she al­ways shined a pos­i­tive light upon oth­ers. The 20+ years Ruth was em­ployed at Gump’s were some of her hap­pi­est. This pe­riod also in­cluded many of her trav­els to coun­tries around the world as well as a dy­namic so­cial life. A bench at The Palace of Fine Arts was ded­i­cated to Ruth in 2011. Ruth will al­ways be re­mem­bered as a kind, in­tel­li­gent & el­e­gant woman, be­liev­ing that life, as she was, is beau­ti­ful. Ruth passed away peace­fully on Septem­ber 18, 2017 at 100 years young.
