May 23, 1924 – June 19, 2014
Ruth was born in Tacoma WA. to parents Pearl and Henrietta Harris. She was the youngest of seven children, having two brothers and four sisters.
Ruth graduated from Fife High School, where she met her sweetheart and future husband, Stan Beksinski. The two were married in September of 1945 and enjoyed 58 wonderful years together until Stan's passing in 2003.
Ruth and Stan lived on the Beksinski family farm in Fife prior to purchasing their own farm on Peters Rd. in Randle in 1957. The farm was to be their permanent home, where they enjoyed all the years of raising their girls, milking cows and growing crops. Ruth was especially fond of the dozens of young kids that worked summers on the farm over the years. She spoke of them often and was proud of the delicious meals she served up at lunch time. She was so happy that her girls were able to be raised on the farm.
Ruth was a member of the Illahee Garden Club and the Randle Women's Guild. Ruth and Stan were faithful members of the White Pass Booster Club. They really enjoyed sitting with their friends watching the ball games.
Ruth loved planting flowers, cooking great meals and watching the Mariners. She made spaghetti, roast beef and raspberry pie that could be matched by none.
Ruth moved from the family farm in 2008 to Heritage House in Morton where she continued to add to her family, most notably her best friend Edna Mocan and Joie Nyman, the Activities Director.
Ruth's favorite thing was living on the farm and family gatherings, having the last one on her 90th birthday. She was so happy.
Ruth always had a "thank you", a big hug and an "I love you" for everyone.
Ruth was preceded in death by her dear husband Stan, her parents, her brothers, David and Gordon, sisters, Violet, Charlotte, Marguerite, and longtime family friend Ed Hemel.
Ruth is survived by sister, Phyllis Stillings, daughters; Nancy (Mike) Holtermann, Wendy (Randy) Kenny, Debbie (Greg) Cox; grandchildren Jill McGinnis, Jeff Jacobsen (Gina), Bo (Kaylene) Kenny, April (Fritz) Kaech, Krista Kenny (Mav), Haylee Cox(Josh), and Eric (Michelle) Cox, great grandchildren; Carson and Saren McGinnis, Jaycee and Koltin Kaech, Kallin Kenny, and Rylinn and Maysen Cox.
Ruth was loved by so many and will be forever missed.
A memorial for Ruth will be held at 1:00pm on Friday June 27th at First Church of God, Morton, with PastorBill Shepherd officiating. Donations in Ruth's name may be made to Heritage House, c/o Activities Director, P.O. Box 1329 Morton, WA. 98356.
Arrangements are under the care of Brown Mortuary in Morton.
