    I remember Ruth from years ago . My grandmother was Ida Lunow. When I was growing up at ST. Jacobi we went to may thing at Christ. Many memories. She had a long life probably the last of that generation.

    Loosing a parent at any age is always painful but what a blessing to have had her for such a long time! Knowing she is now enjoying heaven with our Savior and the glorious reunion with those who have gone before, is such a comfort!! Sending our love, Marv and Sharon Rosenau ✝️

    Our dear Aunt Ruth is the last of the Feuerstahler “Aunties” who were so special to my cousin, Barbara (Schuppie) Loukidis and me. Aunt Ruth never forgot a birthday or to send a newsy Christmas letter. Her handwriting was just as strong at 100 as it had been forever. A sweet, soft smile was always present. She will be missed.

    Kathy & Feuerstahler family: My condolences on the loss of your Mother. She was blessed with many years on earth and now is more blessed in her Heavenly home. Your Mother was a cousin of my Mother, Ruth Lunow Unruh. We are also related to the Gumz & Kallies families at Christ Luth. Church. Kathy and I were in the same class at WISCO. Your Mother kindly provided information for the family tree I was working on. Our family enjoyed our times with Ruth & Ambrose.

    Aunt Ruth was a gracious and beautiful woman inside and out. Her personality was joyous; and she lived her life for the betterment of others. My sisters and myself can remember the Thursday afternoons at Aunt Helen’s House (Even though it was Grandpa’s Feuerstahler’s House) where all the Aunts would get together for their weekly coffee clutch. What a time they all had. And Aunt Ruth WAS their sister. She always was smiling and always had a hug for all of us girls. I especially remember an afternoon when Mom (Katie) was still with us and Suzie was in town and we went to visit Aunt Ruth. She made the best cookies I had ever eaten. I asked for the recipe and she named them Aunt Ruth’s Cookies. I will never forget that special afternoon as it was the last that my Mom and Aunt Ruth ever saw each other. God Bless you Aunt Ruth and may God Keep you in safe in His Arms…
    We will remember You Always.

    I went to grade school at Christ Lutheran with Michael and would like to express my condolences to you and the family and to all the friends that loved your mother. I lost my mom three years ago February. You are all in my prayers. God Bless you all. She had lived the life that many people don’t get.
