Ruth Marie, daughter of Herman and Melinda (Schlatter) Sieck, was born March 4, 1940, at Mercy Hospital in Oelwein. Shortly after Ruth was born, her mother died, and Florence raised Ruth along with her father and many loving family members. Ruth received her education in the West Central Schools. She was a long time member of Grace Lutheran Church in Fayette. Ruth loved music, had a beautiful singing voice, playing cards, played the chord organ, the Minnesota Twins and jigsaw puzzles. She also thoroughly enjoyed her many years at Maple Crest Manor and the many friends she made while living there. Ruth enjoyed life and the most important thing to her was her faith.

Ruth is survived by her brother, Eugene (Doris) Sieck of Maynard; eleven nieces and nephews, Steve (Patty) Sieck of Denver, Colorado, Kathy (Ed) Traeger of Readlyn, Donald, Jr. (Shelly) Sieck of Fayette, David Sieck of Fayette, Karen (Glen) McCort of Cedar Rapids, Susie (Mark) Caffrey of Minnetonka, Minnesota, Robbie (Faye) Sieck of Cedar Rapids, Jim (Dawn) Sieck of Waverly, Joel (Jennifer) Sieck of Maynard, Gary (Tammi) Fink of Maynard, and Al (Roxanne) Fink of Randalia; twenty-seven great-nieces and nephews; eighteen great-great-nieces and nephews; and many other family and friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Vera, who died in infancy; brother, Donald, Sr.; step-mother, Florence; two great-nephews, Dylan McCort and Chase Haskins; and one great-great nephew, Wyatt Lee Sieck.

It was a joy to hear Ruth sing so beautifully at the Sing-a-long each month at The Maples. I can just imagine how much joy she must be experiencing now, singing along with the other saints and angels before our Father's throne in glory!

Ruth will be missed by myself and many other neices and nephews. She was loved by so many at Maple Crest Assisted Living and nursing home, where she lived for 16 years. She was so kind. Most important was her faith in God.
