Ruth Roemer
Jun. 21, 1912 - Oct. 22, 2014
Date of Funeral: Oct. 27, 2014

Ruth Roemer passed away at Bridgeview Estates on October 22, 2014, at the age of 102. She was born July 21, 1912, in Fredonia, North Dakota to Otto and Otelia Rast. Two years later her brother Otto was born and the family moved to American Falls, where her father was a blacksmith. Not long after their move, her father passed away from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Eventually Ruth's mother re-married, to Ed Schultz, raising Ruth and her seven brothers and sisters on a dry farm.

On December 1, 1934 Ruth married Alex Roemer. Staying close to her childhood roots of living on a farm, she and Alex farmed just North of Paul, Idaho for over 50 years. Together, they had four children; Jim, Don, Karen and Doris.

Ruth and Alex built a beautiful and loving life together for 72 years. Alex passed away on April 27, 2007, only to be waiting for his Ruth to join him once again when she was ready.

Ruth was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Rupert and Dorcas Society. She enjoyed sewing, needlework and gardening. In 2001, Ruth and Alex left their farm and moved into Bridgeview Estates in Twin Falls. From there, they enjoyed their new apartment and visits from their family.

Ruth was a beautiful person and soul. It didn’t matter who she met, or when, she would always touch their hearts with her sweet smile. She made any day brighter, and every day more cherished with the warm touch of her hand.

Ruth is survived by one sister, Maxine Horst, of Lodi, California; her children Jim (Doris) Roemer,
Don (Karen) Roemer, Karen (Chuck) Langley, Doris (Jerry) Moress, 11 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, and 8 great, great grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank the employees of the Bridgeview long term care unit for the loving care Ruth received.

If you wish, instead of flowers, donations may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church, Rupert, Idaho, or the Salvation Army.

A graveside service for Ruth will be held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, October 27, 2014 at the MAR (Rupert) Cemetery, 450 North Meridian, Rupert, Idaho. Services are under the direction of Joel Heward Hansen Mortuary.
