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.
