Ruth Maher Obituary
Ruth Maher
July 10, 1919 - June 9, 2013
Resident of Fremont
Ruth Maher passed away peacefully after a long battle with Alzheimer 's disease. She was a long time resident of Fremont until the disease made it necessary for her to move closer to her daughter in Lafayette, CA five years ago.
Ruth was an elementary school teacher in the Fremont Unified School District for many years until her retirement in 1984. She then spent her time traveling with her husband, gardening, quilting, reading, sewing and having fun with her two granddaughters. She was also a long time, active member of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Fremont.
Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, Leslie Maher and her son, David Maher. She is survived by daughter Linda Moilan, son-in-law John Moilan, granddaughters Kendra Spencer, Marga Marion, five great-grandchildren and her sister Virginia Haux.
A private memorial service will be held at The Stratford where she spent the last five years of her life. She will be remembered by everyone who knew her as a sweet, loving and generous lady.
