Ruth passed away on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at her home at Riverview Place in Fargo, surrounded by her loving family.
Ruth Schach was born to Theodore and Meta (Rohde) Schach on December 17, 1919 at Perth, ND. She attended all 12 years at Perth School and was confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church at Perth. Her bible verse was Isaiah 41: 10.
Ruth was united in marriage to Raymond Bernstein on November 29, 1946. They made their home and farmed for 35 years near Durbin, ND. They retired from farming and moved into Davenport in 1980. Ray passed away on July 4, 1996. After his death, Ruth continued to make her home in Davenport until moving to Riverview Place in August of 2014.
Throughout her life, Ruth loved spending time raising her family and working on the family farm. She also worked for American Crystal during harvest times and for Schmitty’s Deer Processing in Davenport.
She loved her time fishing at the lakes, tending to her flowers, and just being “on the go”. For many years, Ruth treasured her weekly card games with her Davenport friends.
Ruth is survived by her three children – Delman (Val) Bernstein of Davenport, ND; Eldon (Vicky) Bernstein of Lisbon, ND; and Garnet (Harold) Kilichowski of Davenport, ND; her three grandchildren – Wade (Dawn) Bernstein of Billings, MT; Owen (Jess) Kilichowski of Minot, ND; and Molly Bernstein of Davenport, ND; two very special great grandchildren – Preston and Adilyn; and her step granddaughter, Amy Compson.
