Ruth G. Freeman passed away peacefully on November 17, 2012 at the age of 86. She grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin, receiving her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Wisconsin. After practicing occupational therapy, Ruth taught first grade at Riverdale C.D.S. in New York before raising her family. Moving to Tulsa in 1966, Ruth was an aide at Holland Hall School for several years where her husband Tom Freeman was an administrator until retiring in 1989.
Ruth loved gardening, decorating, reading historical fiction, and taking part in play reading and antique groups. She also loved the outdoors, especially sailing with Tom, whom she married in 1951 and who survives her. Her children Cynthia, Andrea, and John, eight grandchildren, two brothers Edward and Fritz Gruztner, and her larger family of relatives and friends will remember her beautiful smile.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Memory Center of Saint Simeon’s for their love and care during Ruth’s final days. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Saint Simeon's Episcopal Home, Holland Hall School or Up With Trees.
