Ruth Sophia

Our beautiful mother, Ruth Kush, jumped into Jesus’s waiting hands at the age of 88.9 years on August 27, 2016 surrounded by love and is now dancing the “Stevens Point Oberek” with her favorite dance partner and late husband, Peter Kush. Ruth was also preceded in death by her parents, Margaret and Stephen Burch, sister, Dolores Nelson and granddogs Moosewood and Claudia.

Ruth is survived by son, John and his mate, Becky Barlow, her children Phillip and Kate (of Auburn, AL), daughter, Margaret (Joan), Milwaukee, granddog, Timber, brother-in-law, Peter Nelson, and many dear family members and friends.

Much thanks to all those who cared for Ruth: Dr. Sinopoli, Horizon Hospice team – Alyse, Toi, Stephanie, Lisa, Elena and Stowell team – Theresa, Verlinda, Ruth, Sabrina, Shannon, Tyesha and Jennifer.

Remember Ruth when you look to the stars, see a bald eagle, dance a Polish style polka or take a slug of blackberry brandy. Sto lat.

Dear Margaret & John

Our sincere sympathy & prayers for comfort and healing. Our friend lives on forever in our hearts. She loved her Polish music and that kept her moving to enjoy 88 wonderful years.
Gods blessings and know she was loved & we’ll miss her dearly.

Ruth was a fun loving and feisty woman even through her toughest moments. Margaret was incredibly devoted and at her mothers side throughout her later years and illness. Ruth was extremely proud of her children Margaret and John, and they remain her greatest legacy!❤️
