Gifts & Memorial Donations

Williamsburg, VA- Ruth E. Schultz left us on September 29th, 2018.
Ruth cherished the time she spent through the years with her friends and family and asked we remember her through those experiences rather her many and varied accomplishments. Her request will leave us reflecting on the time spent with her; our hands in the dirt, feet in the snow, faces turned towards the sun, saltwater splashing about, a cold beverage in hand, wind whistling in our ears and smiles in our hearts.
Ruth is survived by her brother, Robert Schultz, his wife Joyce, their children and grandchildren, as well as her cousin Barbara Buzako, her husband Richard and their family.
A celebration of life will be held at The Williamsburg Community Chapel on October 10th, 2018 at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Hospice House of Williamsburg (

    37 years ago I joined Monday Night Girls, which Ruth was a member of. I have so many happy and fun memories of our times together. We went up to NY State each year in the fall for the weekend with many great adventures and lots of food. Ruth loved to do stamping, had many stamping parties and enjoyed sharing new techniques she learn at the shows. She was so adventurous and loved to travel and we loved to hear all about her experiences. Always so cheerful and upbeat, she will be truly missed. At peace now with new adventures in a new place.

    I first met Ruth in the 50's being members of St' John's Lutheran Church in Jersey City, N.J. and as members of the "Order of Rainbow for girls" In the 60's the "Monday Night Girls" were formed and Ruth was one of the original girls for over 50 years. Mournfully she is now the first to leave us physically, but will always remain one of us in our hearts. Ruth was the most daring and adventurous MNG, as an avid sailer, skier, world traveller and motorcyclist. Ruth introduced us to Williamsburg over 10 years ago, when she was buying her property and planning her dream house, which she showed us even before it was built. Since then Williamsburg has become our most frequently used vacation spot and we always had wonderful and memorable days with her in Virginia. We will always miss you until we meet again.

    So many wonderful memories of our dear friend Ruth - through high school, Rainbow Girls, sleepovers to make attending Monday Night Girls easier and our life adventures. Ruth encouraged our late son Derek to try skiing, public speaking and drinking Coca Cola for breakfast (which we nipped in the bud!!!). We loved hearing of her many adventures and helped her through those famous “Novembers” where Schultz always seemed to get injured in!!!! We will always remember the MNG weekends, the picnics at Joan’s, the different crafts she got us into and the forthright, direct and caring person Ruth was. We shall miss our dear friend and are so grateful that she was a part of our life - her legacy to us.

    Ruth's friendship was a treasure, from our youth to our old age - from Girl Scouts to Monday Night Girl as senior citizens. I fondly remember celebrating birthdays together as we created culinary dinners for our friends, laughing as we got lost driving thru the Catskill mountains, learning how to do new things like rubber stamping - she was an inspiration to try new things. Her boldness inspired me to be strong and explore. Her gifts were so diverse and so were our conversations. My life has been blessed by her and thankful for the memories. Our faith in Christ shaped us and lets me say, rest in peace dear friend.

    I remember Ruth as being one of the "older" girls in the Girls Choir at St. John's. She always had a smile and included the "younger" girls in conversations. When she went to England I asked her to bring home a rock from Westminster Abbey and she did. I had it forever. She will never be forgotten . Rest in our Lord and be at peace.
