Ruth A. Grimm, 89, died May 23, 2010 at home in Pleasant Hill, surrounded by family and close friends.

Ruth was born on January 2, 1921 in Philadelphia, PA. She was the daughter of Harry & Mary Waters. Ruth married James W. Grimm in June of 1961. Ruth and Jim lived in the Philadelphia and New Jersey areas before moving to Cape Coral, Florida in 1987. Ruth and Jim enjoyed retirement in Florida until moving to Pleasant Hill in 2004 to be near their children, Kim & Carl Drautz.

Ruth was actively involved with her dear friends spending time at Four Mile Senior Center, knitting with neighbors and attending her beloved Tea on Tuesdays. Ruth had a circle of friends that she cared for and loved dearly. Special thanks goes out to those friends as they truly made Ruth's last year of life a beautiful reminder of patience and selflessness.

Ruth leaves behind one son, Carl Drautz (Kim Drautz), four grandchildren, Ethan Narber, Austin Narber, Jason Drautz, Jen Hardey (Alan Hardey) and one great grandchild, Michael Hardey.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, May 28 at Lutheran Church of the Cross in Altoona. Memorial contributions can be made to Lutheran Church of the Cross in loving memory of Ruth A. Grimm.
