Ruth was born on July 9, 1926, in Marshfield, the daughter of Joseph and Katherine (Besl) Ertl. She graduated from St. Mary’s Grade School in Bakerville, Wisconsin and later earned her GED. On November 21, 1944, she was united in marriage to Ervin Haumschild at St. John’s Catholic Church in Marshfield. She was employed as a unit clerk at the former Saint Joseph’s Hospital for 17 years before retiring in 1987. She later worked part time in Ginseng Gardens. She was a member of St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Milladore as well as a member of the Altar Society which later became the Saint Wenceslaus PCCW.
Ruth loved doing anything outside, especially spending time in her gardens. She always said, “put me outside with a hoe and I’m happy.”
Ruth’s greatest love was her family. She shared her love, support and her renowned sticky buns with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. All who loved her dearly will never forget her wit, her willingness to lend a hand and her undying love.
Those who will cherish her memory include her children: Richard (Ruth) Haumschild of Milladore, Carol (Dennis) Mancl of Plover, Lynn (Jon) Kelnhofer of Marshfield and Sharon (Dennis) Draxler of Auburndale; her grandchildren: Greg Haumschild, Jeff (Laura) Haumschild, Craig Brandl, Christa (Todd) Graverson, Eric Kelnhofer, Alex (Rikki Bloom) Kelnhofer, Janel (Bryant Kollie) Draxler, Leah (Corey) Schill and Megan (Tad) Fehrenbach and her 15 great grandchildren. She is further survived by sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Irene Haumschild, Ed & Shirley Haumschild and Don & Sandy Haumschild along with many other relatives and friends.
Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Katherine Ertl; her husband, Ervin Haumschild in 2014; four sisters, Barbara, Hattie, Marge and Ann and three brothers, William, Joseph and John.
The family would like to thank the staff of the 4th floor palliative care team of Marshfield Medical Center for their care and compassion while our Mom was there.
