A memorial service will be held at the First United Methodist Church in Collingswood, New Jersey on June 12, 2016 at 2:00 PM. Ruth was born in Taylorsville, Maryland to Clarence and Zelma Wright on December 5, 1926. She graduated from Westminster High School (Maryland) in 1944. After attending the Baltimore Business College she began her career as an administrator working at various companies including Wightman Shipping based in Philadelphia. Ruth performed volunteer work for various organizations in her community and was a very active member of the Collingswood Methodist Church. Ruth had an adventuresome spirit, camping extensively in the United States when her family was young and later with her husband traveling the world and sailing the seas on their sailboat, Escapade. Ruth was a loving, thoughtful, kind, and witty wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and neighbor who will be sorely missed by the many people whose lives she touched. Ruth is preceded in death by her parents; Clarence and Zelma; her brother Everett; and two sisters, Katherine and Joyce. Ruth is survived by her husband Jim; son Jim (Melanie); daughter Susan (John); daughter Sandy; and two granddaughters Leilani and Bobbie.
