Ruth Goodman Steilberg was a homemaker and was married over 61 years before her beloved husband, Donald J Steilberg, passed away in 2006. She was a 1943 graduate of Valley High School and a member of the National Honor Society. Ruth had been a member of Shively Baptist Church in the 1938-54 era, then Auburndale Baptist 1954-71, and finally, Plum Creek Baptist 1971-2010. She was a highly principled Christian woman who was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who asked for it. By many, she has been described as an "angel on earth". She was fortunate enough to have travelled to the Holy Land in 1981 and had made many trips to Canada with her husband, Donald. They especially loved the Niagara Falls/Welland Canal area in the summers and traveling to Hearst, Ontario in the winters via the Snow Train. Once they even drove to the remote capital of the Northwest Territories, Yellowknife. I believe she would have liked to be best remembered as one who shared her love of Christ to others. Her only request when having her tombstone designed was for it to have a cross on it. She is survived her son, Dr. Stephen C Steilberg, and her daughter, Rebecca Anne Steilberg-Oatson.
