Daughter of Elsa (came over from Sweden) and Charles Gathemann (came from Germany).

Ruth graduated from Roosevelt HS in Chicago in 1937. Ruth was one of the "Rosie's of Mare Island Shipyard" during WWII. She was a clerk in charge of filing and retrieving Ship plans for the engineers and builders. Always a Patriot, up to her last days she would raise and lower her Flag in front of her home each day!

Ruth was retired from Illinois Tool Works in Chicago in 1978 and attended the annual Reunion. She was a loyal member of the Swedish Club SVITHIOD #1 in Illinois. Ruth was a longtime member of Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church of Seminole, FL and was married there in 1981 to Henry "Pat" Johnson.

She and husband, "Pat" traveled throughout the United States from Alaska to Maine, TeXas to North Carolina. She loved going to Hard Rock Cafe with her crew of friends and was always the life of the party!

She was known as "Mom" to many and loved by all who knew her. Her warm and loving nature as well as her fun and positive personality won her friends everywhere she went. She will certainly be missed.

She is survived by her son Robert of Largo, Niece Marsha of Texas, Niece Gail of Wisconsin and Nephew Scott in Illinois.
