Ruth Ann Schulz reunited with her eternal companion LeRoy Schulz on March 26, 2022.
Ruth was born Sept. 8, 1941 to Arlond Dell Andrews and Eunice Merrill Andrews. She married LeRoy Schulz on September 2 1966. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They enjoyed 49 years of marriage, until his passing in 2016.
She was an unselfish, loving wife and mother. She was always concerned about others before herself. She taught her children to love and accept others no matter their race, background, upbringing, or disability.
She loved animals, and animals loved her. She would have wild animals come up to her, and literally eat out of the palm of her hand. She had many kinds of pets over the years, from dogs, cats and rabbits to skunks, squirrels, and snakes. One pet she never got but wanted, was a raccoon. Although there was a family of them on her property at one time, that we had trapped and moved. Another animal she always wanted (her favorite) was a horse.
Ruth was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She loved serving in the Salt Lake Temple. While she served in many callings, this was her favorite, in which she served for many years.
She leaves behind her children; Ace (Donna) Newby, Michelle (Sidney) Cornett, Julia (Paul) Midkiff, Angela Schulz, Marinda Hilton, siblings; Jannett, Lorraine, Thomas (Trudy), many grandchildren; and great grandchildren.
Preceded in death by; brothers Arlond, Veloy, Don, Larry and James, son Scott, son-in-law Mark, and granddaughter Malarie.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Moniker/Tender Care Hospice, and Capitol Hill staff for the loving care, and compassion they gave to our mother.
