Ruth M. Mead
of Scranton, PA
Ruth M. Mead, 83, of Scranton, PA, formerly of Montrose, PA, passed away, Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Born July 6, 1937, in Susquehanna, PA, the daughter of the late Benjamin and Lila Rose [Lowe] Mead.
Ruth was a housekeeper in various local offices.
Ruthie resided at a group home with the Arc of NEPA for the last three years. Before living with the Arc, she lived in a life-sharing home with Linda Nagel for many years.
While with the Arc, Ruthie enjoyed doing arts and crafts activities, getting her hair, nails, makeup done, and spending time with her beloved staff. She loved her housemates and staff very much at the Arc but was always sure to mention her time living with Linda and shared many memories from her time with her. She also worked for many years at Human Resource Center in Honesdale and enjoyed it very much.
Ruthie had a love for all things involving cats. She loved and missed her cat Pretty that she had for many years. She also adored hello kitty and collected many dolls that she loved to show everyone who visited her. She loved showing everyone her photo album and would love to point to all of her family members and tell you their name and tell you all about them.
A very special thank you to all of Ruthie's past caretakers, family, and friends. In the words of Ruth Mead, "I'm gonna miss you-I will".
Survivors include a sister Ella Stark of Oklahoma and nieces and nephews.
