Ruth Rose Richardson Obituary
RUTH ROSE RICHARDSON, 91, of Hemet, CA, met her Heavenly Father Friday, December 16, 2016, in Anaheim, CA. She was born on September 28, 1925 in Oregon City, Oregon, to the late Christian and Caroline Hochhalter. Her early life was filled with wonderful memories spent on the farm from harvesting with her 12 siblings to her dad crashing their car into the barn because somehow the word "WHOA" didn't apply to model T's. Of the 13 children, Larry Hochhalter, the youngest, lives in Battle Ground, Washington. She met her husband, Eugene, at the Good Humor ice cream factory where she worked side by side with Eugene's mother who thought the two would make a wonderful couple so she introduced them. Well, she was right, they were married for 62 wonderful years until 2006 when Eugene passed away. Ruth, between raising children and being a homemaker, got through nursing school and began working as an LVN for over 25 years. Taking care of others was a big part of who she was. She was very involved at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Hemet for many years, She put Braille bibles together and helped with many other volunteer activities. She was also an avid sports fan spending time between rooting for the Dodgers and Padres. She enjoyed college football and her favorite teams were Stanford, USC, and Notre Dame. Ruth was a great cook and loved family dinners. Her specialty was baking amazing pies and cookies. Ruth is survived by son, Russell Richardson, his wife, Sylvia, of Diamond Bar, CA; son, Stan Richardson, his wife, Debby, of Poway, CA; 5 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; and preceded in death by 2 great-grandchildren. Services will be held at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 701 N. Sanderson Ave., Hemet, CA 92545, Tuesday, January 3, 2017 10:00 AM with a reception immediately following at 11:00 AM at the church. Please remember Ruth by making donations to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Arrangements handled by Miller-Jones Mortuary & Crematory, 1501 West Florida Ave, Hemet, CA 92543.
