 Ruth M. Scanlon, age 91, of Kentwood, went to be with her Lord on Friday, November 27, 2020. Ruth loved the arts, sewing, and was an excellent cook and baker. She enjoyed working on the computer and doing crossword puzzles in the New York Times and St. Ignace News in ink. The harder the better. A loving wife, mother, and homemaker, Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her loving daughter, Julie (Dave) Didion; and many close friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice; parents, William and Margaret St. Louis; and in-laws, Charles and Margaret Scanlon. Thank you to the staff at Waldon Woods and Faith Hospice for the wonderful care they provided. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 am Tuesday, December 1, at St. Sebastian Catholic Church, 9408 Wilson Ave. SW with Msgr. William Duncan as celebrant. Interment will be next to her husband, Maurice, in Resurrection Cemetery. There will be an hour of visitation prior to the service from 10 - 11 am at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Sebastian Catholic Church or Faith Hospice.
