“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.
