MILLEDGEVILLE – Ruth A. Wolf, 63, of Milledgeville, died Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, at Good Samaritan Society – Mount Carroll.

She was born July 4, 1954, in Madison, Wisconsin, to Chester and Joyce (Fey) Strehlow. She married William Wolf on Dec. 9, 1972, at Milledgeville Brethren Church.

Ruth was a custodian with the Milledgeville-Chadwick School system for 23 years. She previously had been employed with Franz Manufacturing for 10 years.

Ruth enjoyed the outdoors, flowers, and working in her yard. She loved to decorate for any holiday, attending horse shows, her grandchildren’s sporting events, and camping with her husband, Bill. In her leisure time she liked to sit by the pool. Her children and grandchildren meant the world to her, and she supported them every chance she had. She and Troy had a very special bond. The smiles and laughs when one would enter a room always will be remembered. 

Surviving are her husband, William of Milledgeville; two daughters, Jennifer Kendall of Milledgeville and Billy Jo (Steven) Rahn of Chadwick; her grandchildren, Kyle, Ryan, and Troy Kendall, and Lane and Nathan Rahn; two sisters, Linda Folkers of Milledgeville and Debra Meyers of Rock Falls; three brothers, John (Connie) Strehlow of Champaign, Mike (Kaye) Strehlow of Milledgeville, and Chester (Kristy) Strehlow of Forreston.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Joy Lynn; and a brother, Jerry.

Visitation will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at McDonald Funeral Home in Milledgeville. The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Monday at the funeral home, with Pastor Rick Koch officiating. Burial will be at Oak Knoll Memorial Park in Sterling.

A memorial has been established in her memory.
