THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Angeline M. Ruege
Angeline Angie Myrtle Ruege, 93, of Suring passed away with her family by her side on Wednesday, July 30.
Born in Maple Valley, on Dec. 16, 1920, to Hans P. and Marie (Skougard) Hansen, she graduated from Suring High School. Born and raised on the family homestead, she resided there her entire life. On Sept. 7, 1940, she married Alfred Ruege and together they farmed the homestead until retirement.
She enjoyed spending time with family, friends and neighbors, but her true joy came from being a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She cherished time spent with family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A member of Suring United Methodist Church, she was a crafter, an avid reader and enjoyed traveling, cooking, baking and gardening.
She is survived by three children, Lois (Richard) Adams, Donald (June) Ruege and Gary (Betty) Ruege; three grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; many nieces; nephews; other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred on Aug. 15, 1996; her parents, Hans P. and Marie Hansen; a brother, Fernand Hansen and a sister, Elaine Hansen.
Visitation was held at Suring United Methodist Church on Friday, Aug. 1 from 9 a.m. until time of a funeral service at 11 a.m. Pastor Daniel Nault officiated with burial in Hickory Cemetery by her husband. Gruetzmacher Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements. A memorial fund has been established.
