MILLEDGEVILLE – Ruth A. Wolf, 63, of Milledgeville, died Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, at Good Samaritan Society – Mount Carroll.

She was born July 4, 1954, in Madison, Wisconsin, to Chester and Joyce (Fey) Strehlow. She married William Wolf on Dec. 9, 1972, at Milledgeville Brethren Church.

Ruth was a custodian with the Milledgeville-Chadwick School system for 23 years. She previously had been employed with Franz Manufacturing for 10 years.

Ruth enjoyed the outdoors, flowers, and working in her yard. She loved to decorate for any holiday, attending horse shows, her grandchildren’s sporting events, and camping with her husband, Bill. In her leisure time she liked to sit by the pool. Her children and grandchildren meant the world to her, and she supported them every chance she had. She and Troy had a very special bond. The smiles and laughs when one would enter a room always will be remembered.
