Ruth Catherine Taylor passed away on June 1, 2013, at the age of 97. She was preceded in death by Charles, her beloved husband of 69 years.

Ruth and Charles reared two children, Alan and Eileen, who were born in Cohasset, Minn. They operated the Arrowhead Café in Grand Rapids, Minn. In 1951 they moved to Devils Lake, N.D., and purchased the Coast to Coast Hardware Store, where they worked side-by-side for 35 years. During this time Ruth became a very accomplished artist and many of her paintings can be found in the Devils Lake area.

They spent many years wintering in Mesa, Ariz., dancing, dining, golfing and socializing with many friends. In 1989 they moved to Dixon to be close to Eileen and Dennis Ojakangas’ family. Ruth was active in the Senior Center, May Fair and Davis Lutheran Church. Alan, his wife Doris, and many family members enjoyed visiting with them. Ruth enjoyed world travel.

She will be dearly missed by seven grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.

A memorial service celebration of her life will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16,  at Davis Lutheran Church. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers remembrances may be made to Yolo Hospice, Davis Lutheran Church or a charity of your choice.
