Ruth Hall Leoffler, 8/7/1921 ~ 10/30/2012

Ruth Hall Leoffler, 91, passed away Tuesday, October 30, 2012, and Orville Lee "Leo" Leoffler, 94, met her on that "other shore" Thursday, November 01, 2012.

Ruth was born on August 7, 1921, in Virginia, Minnesota, to Ruth Mae Hall and Thomas Lewis Hall.

Mama and Daddy met while working at Sears in Beaumont, Texas. Ruth had a bet with one of her co-workers as to who would get a date with the new handsome stock boy. Our mama, Ruth, won that bet and Daddy was the luckiest man on earth. They celebrated seventy-one years of marriage on October 1, 2012.

Mama was office manager of J.J. Newberry's Company until her retirement. Leo and Ruth then moved from Beaumont to Kirbyville where they developed and operated "Leoffler Springs" Spring Water Company.

She is survived by her husband, Leo (he died on November 1, 2012) daughters, Kathryn Deorsam and her husband, Larry; Linda Taylor; Jennifer Tice and her husband, Cliff; and Diane Rochelli and her husband, Phil; grandchildren, Brian Deorsam, Carrie Deorsam, Erin Taylor Hassell and her husband, Dr. Jonathan Hassell; Dr. Rachel Rochelli-Charles and her husband, Brett Charles; and Kathryn Rochelli Barker and her husband, Dr. Jared Barker; great-grandchildren, Kaylee Rochelli and Benjamin Barker; and Leo's sister, Ina Mauldin.

Ruth is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Virginia Leon and her brother, William Hall.

Ruth and Leo's funeral service will be 10:00 a.m., Saturday, November 3, 2012, at Broussard's, with interment to follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park, Port Neches.
