Ruth G. Stankevich

November 19, 2013

Ruth G. Stankevich, 89, of 50 First Street, Danville, formerly a long-time resident of Riverside, PA, passed into the loving arms of our Lord on Sunday, November 17, 2013. Born September 25, 1924 in Montour County, she was the daughter of William Roy Gable and Catherine Mae Wertman Gable.  

Ruth was married on June 20, 1942 to Henry Peter Stankevich who preceded her passing in 1976. 

Ruth graduated in 1942 from West Hazleton High School. She was employed as a designer/seamstress at Danville Manufacturing for many years and retired from Hanover Brands. Ruth kept busy after retirement as Sexton in her church. As a devoted member of Christ Memorial Episcopal Church since the late 1920s, Ruth taught Sunday school for several years and served on vestry and altar guild. She had an excellent singing voice and sang in the church choir for several decades. Ruth was a long-standing member of the Danville Garden Club and Golden Agers. 

 She loved playing games and regularly played Pinochle in various card clubs. Our momís faith was unwavering and her love was unconditional. Her greatest pride and passion was her children, grandchildren and especially her great-grandchildren. Mom enjoyed so many things in life. As a professional seamstress, she made clothes and wedding gowns for family and friends. She had a bountiful love for gardening, her flowers and crafting. She was rich with friendships and loved traveling with family.  

Ruth is survived by her children, Tommy and wife Lois, Walkersville, MD; Kathy and husband George Smith, Danville; and Cindy and husband Paul Szili, Holtwood, PA. Also surviving are her three grandchildren: Trisha, Jamie, and Shannon; and her four great-grandchildren: Chase, Chantel, Mason, and Jaxx.  She was the last member of her immediate family being preceded in death by her brothers and sisters: Gilbert, James, Grace, Pearl, Mary, and Darlis.  

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service to be held on Friday, November 22 at 11:00 a.m. in Christ Memorial Episcopal Church, 120 E. Market Street, Danville, officiated by the Reverend Nancy Shank.  In lieu of flowers, Ruth asked that memorial contributions be made to Christ Memorial Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 363, Danville, PA 17821.
