Ruth Carol Whitney, of Newport Beach, California, passed away March 16, 2007. The youngest of three children, she was born to Harry and Claribel Niemeier in Los Angeles, California on December 27, 1919. She graduated from Burbank High School and attended Glendale Community College where she met her husband of 44 years, Bernard Whitney. Ruth and Berny were married August 6, 1942 and raised two children in Burbank and Glendale while enjoying their beach homes in Crystal Cove and Balboa Island. In 1968, Ruth and Berny moved to Balboa Island permanently. Ruth's passions in life revolved around her family and tennis. Whether it was enjoying the beach or playing card games with her children and grandchildren, her true joy was being surrounded by family. She also spent much time playing bridge, reading, and enjoying time with the love of her life, Berny. She was a member of the Newport Beach Tennis Club for 25 years and spent most days on the court enjoying the game with close friends. Her love of the game led her to own and operate a tennis store located on Balboa Island appropriately named Island Tennis. Ruth is survived by her daughter, Carolyn McBride of Costa Mesa; her son, Gary Whitney of Seattle, Washington; her son-in-law Robert; her daughter-in-law Vickie; her eleven grandchildren and her seven great grandchildren. Her generous spirit and loving personality will be missed here but we know she is now in heaven with her beloved Berny.
