Michael (Sarah) Ruth of Beaver Falls, and Nancie J. Ruth-McNew of Greencastle; eleven grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Patricia was preceded in death by a grandson, Justin Redding; one brother; and two sisters.

Her funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at the Fogelsanger-Bricker Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc., Shippensburg. Dr. Dennis Atkinson and Rev. Jeffrey Redding, her sons-in-law, will officiate. Interment will follow in the Spring Hill Cemetery. Viewing will be Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., at the funeral home.
