Ruth Emily Vogel

Ruth graduated from UPS Law School in 1988, worked as deputy prosecutor in Lewis County, and later assisted many clients through her 22 year Ballard practice. She was a strong advocate for personal estate planning.

Ruth was socially active throughout her life. She worked at NW Adoption Exchange and always promoted human rights. She was a member of Aging Ballard Lesbians (ABLE) and volunteered at the Ballard Senior Center. Ruth liked holidays, family traditions, and playing games such as Yahtzee and bridge. Being a parent was a lifelong dream she fulfilled. She is survived by many family and friends, and her dog Jasmine.
