Maxwell, Ruth  
Ruth Maxwell Arroyo Grande, CA Ruth Maxwell passed away peacefully on July 30, 2016 at the age of 92 in Arroyo Grande Ca. She grew up on a farm in Cummington, Ma. with 6 brothers and sisters. After high school Ruth moved to Washington D.C., where she met her husband, Ed, a young sailor. They married and moved to Southern California, where they raised three children. As a young wife, she worked for a time for a defense contractor in San Diego, Ca., and later for Montgomery Ward, and then as an assistant in a nursing home in Escondido, Ca. When Ed retired they moved to Gunnison Utah, then St George, where they were both active in their church and their community. After Ed passed away in 1998 Ruth continued to be active in her church as a deacon and doing volunteer work. She grew beautiful roses with which she kept the local nursing home in constant supply. But her favorite job was being a homemaker, wife and mother to her three children. In 2010 Ruth moved from St George to Arroyo Grande, Ca. to be near her daughter and son-in-law. Ruth is survived by her son, Eric Maxwell, her daughters, Laurel Stine and Judith O'Morrow and her grandson, Jason Stine. At Ruth's request, there will be no memorial service, but she will always be remembered by her loving family and the many lives she touched with her kindness.
