Lazarus of West Chester, PA; two granddaughters, Laura L. Jessup and her husband Jeremy of Manassas Park, VA and Lindsay C. Lazarus of Philadelphia, PA; a great grandson Riley Douglas Jessup. A second great-grandson is expected to arrive in December. Ruth enjoyed her neighbors and community at Shepards Cove. She was a generous, kind, quick-witted, independent woman and a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. Some of her favorite things, besides her loving family and friends, were Tom Brady and the Patriots, an occasional scotch, sunsets, the NY Times Sunday crossword puzzle, game shows and music.
