Ruth Mummert Obituary
RUTH MUMMERT 1939 - 2015 Mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 12th, 2015 just shy of her 76th Birthday. She was surrounded by her son, daughter and several of her precious grandkids when her long battle with her health issues ended. Ruth, a longtime resident of Norco, CA was born on March 31, 1939 to James & Doris Mecham in Wickenburg, AZ. She married Paul Mummert, on New Year's Eve 1958 in Phoenix, AZ. In 1960 they moved to California, where they served in a number of children ministries within the Foursquare church. Paul, who died in April 2003 of pancreatic cancer, and Ruth both loved children and had an entrepreneurial spirit; purchasing their first pre-school in Long Beach in the early 80's. Over the next 30 years she successfully ran several preschools and other small businesses eventually leaving the day to day operations to her daughter Amanda. In 1986 the family moved to Norco, CA where she resided until 2013. Ruth enjoyed reading, quilting and sewing, but her greatest joy came from spending time with her 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She is survived by her 3 children, Webster Mummert, Catherine Yard, and Amanda Phillips, as well as her brother James Mecham, and her 2 sisters Kathy Jo Falkner and Joyce Dalfior; in addition to numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. The family will be holding a Celebration of Life service for Ruth at Pierce Brothers-Crestlawn Mortuary and Memorial Park, 11500 Arlington Ave, Riverside, CA 92505 | 951-689-1441 on March 19, 2015 at 10am.
