Sacramento Bee, The (CA) - August 22, 1996
Lola Fern Ruppert, former community college trustee and retired McClellan
Air Force Base employee, died Tuesday afternoon in a local care facility.
She was 87.
Mrs. Ruppert, a longtime Sacramento-area resident, served nearly a year as
trustee for what was then called American River Junior College.
Known then as Lola Guthrie, she was appointed to the board to replace her
husband, Adin L. "Bill" Guthrie, an original board member, who died in
October 1959. She resigned in August 1960 because she moved out of the
college ward she represented.
"I have a warm spot for the college district and the area which I
represented and which my husband was connected with for so many years," she
told The Bee at the time of her resignation. "I thoroughly enjoyed my
association with the board."
Born Aug. 31, 1908, she moved to the Sacramento area in the early 1940s.
She retired from McClellan Air Force Base after serving 27 years as a
personal secretary.
"She was the most wonderful woman I had ever met," said Matthew Ruppert, her
second husband of 35 years. "I'm not just saying that because she was my
wife but because that's how she truly was. This is a terrible loss for me."
Services for Mrs. Ruppert are scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday in East Lawn
Mortuary, 5757 Greenback Lane. Interment in East Lawn Sierra Hills Memorial
Park will be private.
Besides her husband, a North Highlands resident, she is survived by her son,
Jerry Guthrie, and daughter, Gloria Eister, both of Sacramento, and five
The family suggests that any remembrances be made to a charity of the
donor's choice
