Obituary

Ruth M. Junker, 91, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away peacefully on October 10th, 2016. She was born on November 16, 1924 to Walter and Mabel (O'Connell) Sedler in Cincinnati, Ohio. She married Thomas C. Junker on January 27, 1957 and he passed in 1991.

Ruth owned and tended to the loyal patrons of her Northside bar, Junkers Tavern. She met Thomas when he came in to apply for a bartending position. When he walked in she said, "if that man isn't married, he's gonna be," and the rest is history. Together, Ruth and Tom raised 4 children.

She is survived by her children; Nancy (Kris) Swain, Ken W. Beckenhaupt, and Thomas K. (JoAnn) Junker, 9 grandchildren, and many beloved great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 34 years, Thomas and daughter Linda Koebbe.

    First I am thankful they were part of Northside not just the Bar but also the Laundromat ........Ruth and Tom also helped keep the standards up and keep history alive .......... They brought in the Organist from Dillman's after it changed and "Bob" began playing polkas and old dance standards ......... Whether at Dillman's or Junker's when my Dad showed up He would play "Roll out the Barrel" for my dad to dance a jig to ...... I personally enjoyed the 3.2 jugs of tap beer once I became old enuf and even a bit younger piking it up for the parents ...... I could go on ....... Loved and Respected Ruth & Tom Junker all the Years!!!
