Ruth Juanita McGuire Bornstein Passed away peacefully Nov. 20, 2015 at the age of 87 in Gig Harbor, WA. Born Feb. 26, 1928 to Anna Alden McGuire and Walter McGuire in Spokane, WA, she moved to Tacoma in 1943, graduating from Stadium High School in 1946. She soon married her husband, Harry Bornstein (deceased 1985), having met him at her mother's boarding house. Together they raised their children in Tacoma and hosted many more through the years. She was a fun, loving, stay at home Mom who later went to work for and retired from the US Postal Service after 26 years of service. Ruth will always be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor and the kindness she showed to all. She loved to walk around Steilacoom park, to travel, and visit our National parks, especially Mt. Rainer. Besides rearing her children the highlight of her life was attending the Seahawks first Superbowl in 2006 (even with the loss). She will be greatly missed by her family - daughter, Gloria Bornstein, of Olalla, WA, her son, Brent, of Corpus Christi, TX and her son, Barry (Jill), of Gig Harbor, WA. In addition to grandchildren Kara Hartnell, Amy Blanchard, Elizabeth Conlin, Jacob Benoit, and Moriah Meirndorf she was blessed with 6 great grandchildren. At her request there will be no funeral services.
