Ruth was united in marriage to Paul Hoiby on February 20th, 1948. Ruth worked for Madison Kipp Corporation during World War II and then Madison Drug Company for 40 years. Ruth enjoyed her travels to “every state in the lower 48”, camping, hiking, fishing and hunting, trail bike riding and snowmobiling. She was always surrounded by her dogs and loved them all.

Ruth is survived by her sister, Leola Gable of Madison, and a very special brother, John Neely of Phoenix, AZ; and many great and great-great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Paul in 2008; sisters, Marcella “Sally” Weise, Ann Vodak, and Beulah Kelley.

The family would like to thank the women and staff of Serenity for their care and compassion.
