Ruby S. Kladis

1926 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Salt Lake City, Utah-I passed away reluctantly on April 19, 2014 from cancer. I was born July 6, 1926 to Bessie Price Shuput and Steve Shuput, the 8th child of 12. I graduated from West High School and after graduation went into Nurses Training at Holy Cross Hospital. I graduated from Holy Cross Nursing School in 1947 and worked in the medical profession for 50 years. I worked for Drs. Leo and James Warenski for 32 of those years.
I married "Mike" Emanuel Kladis June 15, 1947, whom I have loved so very much for almost 67 years.
I am so proud of my perfect son, Michael, daughter-in-law Kris, 2 wonderful grandsons, Stephen and Rick. I was delighted to welcome a special addition to our family with Rick's marriage to Kristin in November of 2013.
I am survived by 2 brothers Pete (June) and George (Dottie) Shuput and many nieces and nephews whom I am very fond of.
I am preceded in death by my siblings Anne, Mike, Millie, Dan, Sophie, and Mary Shuput, Bob, Jenny and Steve Repich.
I loved to cook and enjoyed entertaining. I made Greek cookies every year at Christmas until I could no longer do so. I loved going to our cabin in Pine Mountains that Mike built and started a tradition of getting together there for dinner that everyone in the family enjoyed.
I had my famous "Nurses Club" to the cabin every year for many years until the "girls" no longer could make the trip.
I love my Godsons David Katsanevas and John Sargetakis dearly and appreciate the many thoughtful and kind things they did for me through the years.
I thank my dear friends Margaret, for our 70 years of friendship and Claire - I will miss our 7:00 p.m. calls every evening.
Funeral services will be held Thursday April 24, 2014 at Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church 5335 South Highland Drive at 11:00 AM. Visitation will be Wednesday evening from 6:00 - 8:00 with a Trisagion Prayer Service at 7:00 at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 Highland Drive.
I love flowers, but in this case, please consider a donation to the Huntsman Cancer Institute to help find a cure for this horrible disease.
