August 14, 1941 - April 29, 2022
It is with much sadness that we announce that our mother, Ruth White, 80, of Greenville, NY, passed away peacefully on the morning of April 29, 2022. Ruth was born August 14, 1941 and is the daughter of the late Arthur Maxwell and Edna (Stockwell) Maxwell. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Michael White, and son, Gary White. She is survived by her daughter Edna (Joe) Peone, son Timothy “TJ” (Alicia) Rivenburg, sister Bessie (Roger) Vincent, grandchildren Amanda and Einn, as well as her great grandchildren and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Ruth would light up a room with her infectious smile. She was well known and loved by many. She exuded kindness and found joy in bringing happiness to others. Ruth also loved to speak her mind, providing laughter to those around her with her many clichés or “Ruthisms” as referred to by many. Ruth had a lifelong love of country music, never missing an opportunity to see a country band live. She was very vocal during parties or at an event if music other than country was being played. She could often be heard asking “what kind of crap music is this, there is no beat to it” or “I want my country music so I can dance”. And Ruth loved to sing and dance and of course would always be ready with her infamous spoons. She will forever be fondly remembered as the “spoon lady”. Another love of Ruth’s was stopping at every yard sale she came across. She had a knack for always coming across the next great find to add to her collection of “stuff”. Pages could be filled with the many great memories of Ruth. Above all else, Ruth loved her family and friends with all of her heart. Her most prized accomplishments in life were her children, Edna and TJ, as well as her grandchildren. She was most happy when spending time with them. We will forever be thankful for the life and memories she provided for us all. Please remember our mom with a smile and the joyous memories you have of her. A private ceremony will be held by the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Richards Funeral Home of the Mid-Hudson Valley, Inc., 29 Bross Street, Cairo, N.Y. 12413.
