Ruth P. Murray, 88, of South Hamilton, NY passed away Wednesday, September 23, 2015 in the Extended Care Facility of Oneida Healthcare after a long and full life.
Born October 17, 1926 in Oxford to Leon & Grace (Ardron) Palmer. Ruthie was a 1945 high school graduate of Oxford Academy. She then went on to graduate from the Rochester School of Business and loved to tell the story of hitchhiking her way across the state with a friend to get there.
After schooling, she went on to marry LeRoy Samuel Murray of Norwich, NY. Ruthie was always completely devoted to her family and loved a good laugh and a good story. She was the rock of her family and lived to see 5 generations of kids. She spent most of her free time being a good mom carting her kids around. And, then carting, her kids kid's. Never missing a practice, game, color guard show, dance or music recital, graduation, wedding or, hair salon opening. We could always count on Ruthie being there.
Always proud of her independence, Ruthie worked her entire life. She spent the last 20 years of her career at Standard Printed Circuits in Sherburne, NY as a circuit board inspector where she was a valued employee and good friend of the previous owners, the Andersons.
