Obituary for Ruth Lois Winslow

Strongsville, Ohio | Age 90

Loving Mother and Grandmother


Ruth Lois Winslow (née Larmay), 90, died on August 08, 2018. From her birth on January 22, 1928 in Chicago, IL to her death on August 08, 2018, she inspired those around her with her faith, love, and strength. She was born to Lawrence John and Florence Helena Larmay on the west side of Chicago. Ruth was one of four sisters. From a young age, Ruth had a passion for learning. She graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in anthropology and continued to fearlessly pursue her education by attending nursing and graduate school at Western Reserve University.

Ruth was a nurse at many area hospitals before working in nursing education which allowed her to share her love of learning with others. In addition to her lifelong dedication to healing, Ruth was a committed member of Bay Presbyterian and Royal Redeemer Church, participating in bible studies and the choir.

Ruth is the loving mother to Becky (deceased), David, Larry, and Susan. She is preceded in death by sisters Florence, Laura, and Rosemary. She is survived by daughter Susan Karas; sons Larry and David; son-in-law Arthur; daughters-in-law Cyndi and Dilania; grandchildren Christopher and Alexandra Karas, Todd and Troy Pedrick, and Miles Collins; as well as many nieces, nephews, and countless friends.

Ruth will be remembered for her kindness, trust in the Lord, her amazing cupcakes, and her competitive spirit. Most of all, she will be remembered for the joy and peace she brought to all those who knew her.
