Ruth Marie Balck Obituary

Ruth Maria (Brun¿) Balck, 91, of Windsor Locks loving wife of the late Karl H. Balck entered peacefully into Eternal Rest on Sunday, April 27, 2014, at home with her family by her side. Ruth was born March 23, 1923, in West Germany. In 1956 she and her husband Karl immigrated to the United States with their twin daughters, Astrid and Renate. Ruth was a self employed master seamstress who owned her own design shop and did contract work for both Hamilton Standard in Windsor Locks and Kaman Aerospace in Bloomfield where she sewed fiberglass insulation in military helicopters. She was a faithful parishioner of St. Robert Bellarmine Church. She enjoyed driving her 1985 Mercedes along the shore and shopping. Ruth is survived by a son, Dieter Balck and his fiancé, Janice Haesche of Windsor Locks, and three daughters Ingrid O'Donnell and her husband David of Killingworth, Renate Foisy and her husband Larry of Syracuse, NY and Astrid Rogala and her husband Richard of Newport News, VA. Ruth is also survived by six grandchildren, Colin and Logan O'Donnell, Brian Rogala, Lisa Daniel, Michelle Easley and Alisha Dunlavey and eight great grandchildren. Ruth's family would like to thank the VNA Hospice and her home health aide, Diana for the exemplary care and compassion she provided. Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St. Windsor Locks.
