Obituary

Ruth Frey, 95 of Winter Haven, Fl, passed away peacefully on August 28, 2017. She was born to John and Katherine Mueller on February 16,1922 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Ruth married Peter Frey and he preceded her in death on June 25, 2001. They were married for 56 years. Ruth, a true Cincinnati lady, had fond memories of the city and how it shaped her life and relationships. Ruth loved to tell stories about the '37 flood, riding the inclines, and working at MGM film. Ruth's favorite stories were about how her courtship with Pete began at the roller rink and blossomed on their many dates riding the Island Queen to Coney Island. After serving in WWII, Pete returned home to Cincinnati and the couple married. They began their family in 1948 and lived in Northside until the death of Ruth's mother in 1959. They relocated to Mason, where the couple raised their daughter. Throughout the years, Ruth spent her time cheering on the Reds and Bengals, tending her roses, and feeding her cats.

Ruth will be remembered as a generous and sweet mother and grandmother. She loved dancing and would sing along any time she heard Lawrence Welk or Nat King Cole.

Ruth is survived by her daughter Kathy (Mike) Swartz, grandchildren; Katie Swartz, Tom (Lori) Swartz, and Melanie Swartz, and three great-granddaughters; Avery, Lillian, and Sophia. Ruth spent her last two years at the Crossroads Care Center in Davenport, Fl where she leaves many friends and appreciates those who cared for her.

    We know this is a very difficult time for you loosing a precious loved one and we are sorry for your loss. Even when we do all we can, we are unable to prevent "time and unexpected events". May God's "promise of the resurrection" and the reuniting with your loved one bring you comfort. And "throw all your anxieties on God because he cares for you ". Ecclesiastes 9:11 John 5:28,29 1 Peter 5:7 Sincerely, Diane and Family https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&pub=we&srcid=share
