Ruth Preston Obituary
Ruth Preston
Ruth Preston was a single child born of German immigrants in Chicago, Illinois, in 1927. She worked in a family bakery in her youth and had a keen interest in art. She met her husband Dan in high school, also a son of European immigrants. After their sons Jeff and Larry were born the family moved to California, ultimately to San Pedro in 1960. They became the original owners of a new house in which she worked hard to create a comfortable home life for her family. She went to work as a bookkeeper in town as soon as the boys were in high school until the death of Dan at age 50. She shifted her focus to managing an apartment building that the couple had bought. She lived in the same San Pedro home she cherished until her death at age 86. She is survived by her two sons and four grandchildren.
