Ruth Fuchs Obituary

Ruth Helen Fuchs, 99, of Hermantown, MN passed away on November 6, 2023 just days shy of her 100th birthday.

Ruth was born in Ewen, MI on November 18, 1923 to Frank and Gertrude Cameron. After graduating from Motley High School in 1931, she attended Normal School in Staples to become a teacher for one room schoolhouses in rural Minnesota. While plucking chickens for dinner in 1947, she met her future husband George Edward Fuchs, and traveled with him for the next fourteen years between lumber camps and construction sites, until finally settling in Hermantown. An avid volunteer, she spent decades teaching Sunday school at Pike Lake Presbyterian, 25 years at the Proctor food shelf, and served as a den mother for cub and girl scouts.

Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, George; daughters, Linda Fuchs and Joyanne Uhlmeyer, who both passed earlier this fall; and all three of her siblings. 

Ruth is survived by her eldest daughter, Beverly; son, Joseph; six grandchildren; one great-grandson; as well as her many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Visitation will be held at 12:00 PM on Saturday, November 18th at Sunrise Funeral Home in Hermantown, MN with Funeral Service to follow at 1:00 PM. Memorial donations may be made to Second Harvest Heartland online or at 7101 Winnetka Ave N. Brooklyn Park, MN 55428.
