June 15, 1932 - May 9, 2019
Ruth Wilson Ryser June 15, 1932 – May 9, 2019 Ruth left this world holding the hand of her husband, Charles S. Ryser. What a gift it was that he was able to be with her at that moment. Charles and Ruth have been married for 47 years, a remarkable achievement by any standard. Ruth lived a life committed to love, the love of her family and her close friends. She loved her four sons intensely and always was committed to them and helping whenever needed. It is that loving, giving nature that will be missed the most. She was a wonderful artist and greeted most mornings very early reading a book about art. Then she would spend the days standing for hours in front of an easel developing her creations. While she tried her hand at most mediums she eventually found that she loved working with watercolor the most. She felt the “loose-ness” of the style resonated with her. It was never about the selling of the art for her, it was truly the joy of creating it. It was a talent that blessed the lives of many people. Perhaps Ruth’s greatest impact can be seen in the faces of her grandchildren. No concert, recital, play, hockey game or other event was missed. When her daughter-in-law, Kameo Ryser passed away, Ruth was there to help raise her granddaughters. Regardless of the personal inconvenience, she was always there for all of her grandchildren. Ruth is survived by her husband Charles S. Ryser, her sons Joel K. Faulkner (Gloria), Mark E. Faulkner (Mary), Kelly R. Ezell and Jack W. Ryser, and her grandchildren Elliot, Aaron, Allie, Jackie, Jamie, Sharon, Jason and Chris. She was the fourth child of Rose and Joel Wilson and sibling of Rosemary, Rhea, Joel, Ezra and Blaine. All of whom she adored.
