Obituary of Ruth M. Stucker

Please share a memory of Ruth to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
On October 11, 2012 Ruth Mae Stucker ended her long journey here on earth and entered into eternal peace in heaven. Born on August 31, 1913 in Laurel Run Borough, she was the last remaining child of the late William Barnes and Margaret Barnes Olson. Baptized in the Laurel Run Primitive Methodist Church, she remained a member until her death. She was educated in Laurel Run schools. She had worked in various shoe factories and the cafeteria at Eberhard Faber from where she retired. She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband Harold, who died March 15, 1993 and a baby son Donald, who died at birth. She was also preceded in death by her son-in-law John A. Bawiec, daughters-in-law Carole Gryczka Stucker and Lorraine Hrabousky Stucker; brothers Arthur, William and Edgar Barnes; sisters Margaret Skordensky and Anna Hawk. Her life centered around her family, especially her son Robert of West Pittston and her daughter Carol A. Bawiec of Laurel Run. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren: John A. Bawiec, Laurel Run, Joann C. Bawiec, Virginia, Claudia Bublo, West Pittston and Debbie Guyer, Virginia. Her great-grandsons: Jason A. and John A. Bawiec III, Laurel Run and Shaun Bublo of Edwardsville. She lived long enough to see her great-great granddaughter Lucy Tamar Bawiec born and was able to enjoy her for the last 11 months. She also leaves behind nieces and nephews, especially "Cinderella" who always made her laugh. The Family would like to offer a special thanks to the second floor nursing staff and the activities staff at Erwine Hospice for the excellent care they gave her. Funeral services for Ruth will be held on Monday at 10:00 a.m. in Laurel Run Primitive Methodist Church with Rev. Kropp, pastor, officiating.
