Frances Ruth Van Os
On Saturday, March 31, 2018 Ruth Van Os peacefully passed away surrounded by an immeasurable amount of love. Family and friends filled up hallways and rooms of the University hospital on her final day, praying and consoling one another, and recounting favorite memories of time spend. Since family was always of the utmost importance in her life, we all knew she would not have wanted it any other way. And although this does not make the pain of losing her any easier it gives our hearts peace to know that in her final hours, she felt just how adored she truly was. To a wonderful mother, sister, grandmother, auntie and friend – you are loved. You are missed.
