Obituary of Ruth Luchterhand

Ruth Ann Luchterhand, 91 of Loyal passed away on Monday June 11, 2018.

Ruth was born February 4, 1927 to Ben & Esther Skoog (Hoffman) in Dorchester, Wisconsin.

Ruth attended school in Greenwood, Wisconsin through grade 8. Ruth married Melvin Luchterhand, the love of her life on June 8, 1946. Through the years, Ruth had several jobs including the canning factory in Spokeville, Weyerhauser, farming, and later in life maintaining Trinity Lutheran Church where she would retire.  All of these things brought her great joy. Ruth enjoyed spending time grooming the yard, collecting dishware, crocheting each one of her grandkids afghans, sewing block quilts, baking, spending time with her home maker group, and hosting holidays with her beloved family.

Ruth is survived by her children Donna Karl (Rich), Dale Luchterhand (Fay), her 5 grandchildren (Karen (Jeff), Kristi, Jessica (Tony), Brady, and Ben (Rebekah), and 5 great grandchildren (Mark, David, Emily, Ella, and Addison).

Ruth was preceded in death by her parents Ben & Esther Skoog and daughter Debbie Lou Luchterhand.

One of Ruth’s favorite passages and what she wanted to remind those who love her is as follows:

Remember me with smiles and laughter for that’s how I’ll remember you all. Remember me with tears and don’t remember me at all.

An intimate celebration of life will be held at Melvin & Ruth’s home in Loyal at 1 PM on Friday June 15, 2018.
