Ruth Mary Mead passed away Saturday, 30 Jan 2010, at Loma Linda Medical Center after a short battle with cancer.
Ruth was born 24 Dec 1924 to Arthur and Loraine Seiter in Cincinnati, OH. Ruth and her mother moved to Glendale, CA when she was 5 years old, to live with her grandparents.
In 1943, Ruth married Lowell Mead. When Lowell was discharged from the Army in 1946, they made their home in the San Fernando Valley, where Lowell spent 21 years as a plumbing contractor in Van Nuys, CA and Ruth enjoyed being a homemaker. In 1967, Lowell and Ruth moved to Olancha, CA, and in 1973, they moved to the Indian Wells Valley.
Ruth's love for animals was apparent to all who knew her. As a younger woman, she enjoyed riding horses and having the dogs follow along. In later years, Ruth enjoyed walking in the park, having coffee and visiting with her friends, and taking care of her home, which she was able to do until the day she left for the hospital, 14 Dec.
Ruth is survived by her son, Larry and his wife Elaine Mead; her granddaughter and husband Crystal and Dennis Laughlin; and two great-grandchildren Alex and Brianna. She leaves behind her sister-in-law, Barbara Mead; nieces and nephews and their families as well as many good friends.
Ruth was preceded in death by her parents; a stepfather, Ted Sorenson; her husband Lowell Mead; two brothers-in-law, Ira Mead and Kenneth Mead; sister-in-law LaVerne Mead; and a nephew David Mead.
A private graveside service was held 5 Feb in Sylmar, CA.
