Ruth was born August 1, 1923 in Wausau, the daughter of Fred & Rose (Lambrecht) Kurth. She was united in marriage to Delbert (Del) G. Boyack on July 22, 1946 in Ladysmith, Wisconsin.
Ruth was a member of Holy Family for the last 13 years since she moved to Eldridge to live with her daughter. Prior to that, she was a member of St. Therese Catholic Church in Rothschild, Wisconsin for over 50 years. Her rosary was very important to her and she prayed it daily. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Holy Family Catholic Church, Davenport, to benefit their new rosary garden. She was an avid jigsaw puzzler and enjoyed word search puzzles. She always looked forward to a day at the casino.
While she lived in Wisconsin she was on a bowling league, a member of a dart club and frequently played cards with her friends and relatives.
Those left to honor her memory include her daughter and son-in-law, Sherry & Brian Nauman of Eldridge; her step-granddaughter, Andrea Roelens of Davenport; her step-grandsons, Steven & Chad Boyack of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; her step-great-grandchildren, Isabelle & Michael Roelens Jr.; her step-daughter-in-law, Loretta Boyack of Milwaukee; her brother and sister-in-law, Gene & Bea Kurth of Wausau; and her brother Lloyd Kurth of Goshen, New York
