Ruth Lyons Marshak Obituary
Ruth Lyons Marshak, 91, passed away at the Pioneer Medical Center in Big Timber Montana October 28, 2017. Born in Bennington Vermont to Ball and Emilie Lyons, Ruth attended Bennington College where she studied cello under the renowned teacher and performer, George Finckel, graduating in 1948.

Upon graduation, Ruth played cello with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. Her career took a long hiatus following her marriage and a later move to Pennsylvania, with Ruth resuming performance as an orchestral cellist with the Kennett Square Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra in the 1970s and later with the Newark Delaware Symphony Orchestra.

Ruth remained devoted to her family and to her music throughout her life, spending the last five years in the welcoming community of Big Timber, Montana, playing duets with her friend Marie.

She is survived by her sons William and his wife Ivy, John and his wife Suz, Richard and his wife Andrea Landsberg, grandson Nathan, and by her former husband Robert.

Memorial gifts may be made in Ruth's name to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America https://alzfdn.org/support-us/donatme/
