Manahan, Ruth
1927 - 2017
Ruth Manahan, age 90, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2017 while a resident at Sunrise of Bexley. She was born in Columbus, and graduated East High School. Ruth was a student of music at an early age, and began teaching in her late teens. Her commitment to teaching piano and voice endured for the rest of her career. Later she studied under Metropolitan Opera stars, including Eleanor Steber and Renee Flemming, in Cleveland, New York, and Europe. Ruth was active in several music clubs in Columbus, and for many years presented her students in annual recitals. Ruth resided at Sunrise of Bexley for her twillight years, there she received extraordinary yet tender care, sweet smiles, and gentle touches. She continued to enjoy playing the piano at Sunrise. We were grateful for "moments in time" when music connected us. Funeral services will be held at 1:30 PM at the WOODYARD EAST CHAPEL 2300 Livingston Ave. on Sunday, January 7th. We invite friends to share a light meal and time for reflection immediately following the service at TAT Ristorante. The family requests memorial donations be directed to Sunrise of Bexley, 2600 E Main St, Columbus, OH 43209, in Ruth's memory.
