Oct. 31, 1924 - Nov. 20, 2009

Our beloved mother and grand-mother, Ruth, went to be with her Lord Nov. 20, 2009. She was born Oct. 31, 1924, the 10th of 12 children of Walter and Alma Hubbard, immigrants to the Sunnyside area of Clackamas County. She graduated from Milwaukie High School and married BERT DEARDORFF in 1942, joining him in his military service during World War II.

They returned to Happy Valley where they lived until 1963, then moved to their current farm in Beavercreek. Ruth began the lunch program for Happy Valley School and supervised it until her retirement in 1979. She also worked alongside Bert, raising Black Angus cattle which became their passion and fame.

Ruth also loved flower gardening, frequently arranging floral displays for her church.

Bert preceded Ruth to heaven in 2006. She is survived by her brother, Vernon; sister, Iva; son, Dennis (Shirley); daughter, Terry Mathis (Bill); three granddaughters; 11 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m.

Saturday, Nov. 28, 2009, in the Lower Highland Bible Church. Arrangements are by Peake Memorial Chapel in Milwaukie. A memorial fund is being established in her honor at Lower Highland Bible Church, 24353 S. Ridge Road, Beavercreek, OR. 97004.
