Ruth will be remembered by everyone whose path she crossed for her incredible spunk and unsinkable will. She will be greatly missed.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her favorite person of all time, her grandson Seth Warhurst on March 6, 2009; by two brothers: Harold Diehl and Harvey Diehl; and three sisters: Patsy Diehl, Lydia Kreisher and Mary Sabota.

Ruth is survived by two daughters: Mary Weidensaul, Gramby, Mass and Debra Warhurst, Slatington; a granddaughter Michele Warhurst, Philadelphia  and her great-grandson, JJ, who  beat all the odds to be able to meet her.
