Ruth Ann Guringo

AGE: 76 •

Ruth Ann Guringo, age 76, passed away on Monday, December 28, 2015. Ruth was born on February 6, 1939, in Scranton, PA to the late, Raymond and Ruth Grill. She graduated from Scranton Central High School and attended West Chester State College where she met her future husband, Edward Guringo. Ruth moved to Delaware in 1960, and settled in Newark in 1963 where she lived the rest of her life. She worked for the Christina School District and the University of Delaware, although she would tell you that her main job was a stay at home Mom. She was a member of the Girl Scouts, Beta Sigma Phi and Purring Pals Feline Rescue. In her spare time she loved to garden, travel and work with ceramics. She was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, with Chase Utley being her all-time favorite.

Ruth is survived by her husband of 56 years, Edward, her son Mark and grandchildren Matt and Alexis of Lincoln University, PA, son Jeffrey, and daughter in law Polly, and their children Leah, Robbie and Rachel Dows of Cecilton, MD, brother Raymond and sister in law Jeanne of Tampa, FL, sister Judy of Chula Vista, CA, and her pets Max and Chase. She was happiest spending time with family, especially during the holidays when her house was where everyone gathered.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend the mass and funeral service at Holy Angels Church, 82 Possum Park Road, Newark, DE on Thursday, December 31, 2015. There will be a visitation from 9-10am followed by mass at 10am. The burial will be held privately at All Saints Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contribution may be made to "Purring Pals and Feline Rescue", 406 Suburban Drive #10, Newark, DE 19711, or any animal rescue organization of your choosing.
