Ruth Gertrud Rice, 88, of Radcliff, died Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at Signature at North Hardin in Radcliff.

Ruth grew up in Germany where she met her husband, Gorden, who was stationed there with the U.S. Army. Ruth followed her husband with the military to several duty stations. The family made its permanent home in Radcliff. Ruth kept herself busy spending her free time reading, crocheting and baking for her neighbors. But her favorite pastime was spending time with her grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gorden W. Rice.

She is survived by two sons, Eugene (Cheri Via) Rice of La Grange and Ronald (Rosemary) Rice of Radcliff; four grandchildren, Brian Cody Rice, Casey Rice, Emily Rice and Briana Rice; and three great-grandchildren, Peyton Rice, Brody Rice and Elijah Rice.
