Ruth enjoyed singing in the church choirs at both Sacred Heart Church in Suffield and then at St. Mary Church after she moved to Windsor Locks. Ruth bowled for many years in a league at Bradley Bowl and when she could no longer do that, she moved on to Wii Bowling at St. Joseph’s. She loved Bingo, puzzles and traveling with her family and friends. She is survived by four children, Patricia Dineen of Niantic, CT, Keith Engelke, Sr. and his wife Darlene of Windsor Locks, Pamela Mears and her husband Mark of East Granby, Kimberly Whiteley and her husband Brian of Hopkinton, MA; 13 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
