Ruth Kirk Reeves
Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother,
A follower of Jesus Christ.
I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have
kept the faith. Now there is in
store for me the crown of
righteousness, which the Lord,
the righteous Judge, will award
me on that day. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
This past May 28, 2013, Ruth went into the presence of her loving Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ where she was reunited with her husband, Jack, of 50 years who preceded her in death in 1990. Ruth was born on February 15, 1917 in Bellingham WA. She attended Bellingham Normal School (now WWU) and began her teaching career in Lynden WA. In 1976 Jack and Ruth moved from their longtime home in Seattle to Shady Lake in Renton.
Ruth was a committed Christian. With her love of music, she served her Lord over the years as a choir member, a choir director and a church organist. Mrs. Reeves was the first choir director at Maple Valley Presbyterian Church and was a charter member of that church. As an avid reader, she used this passion as an English tutor, a trainer of tutors as well as being the president of the Valley Literacy Council.
Survivors include sons John Reeves and Mark Reeves; daughters Judy Meyer and Cindy Solvie; and 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at Wesley Homes Lea Hill on Wednesday, June 19 at 11a.m. at 32049 109th Place SE, Auburn.
In her memory, contributions may be made to the Wesley Homes Lea Hill Health Care Center.
