Ruth Leck, age 87, of Perrysburg, Ohio passed away peacefully on Friday, October 26, 2018 at Kingston Residence in Perrysburg. She was born on November 13, 1930 in Toledo, Ohio. Ruth was a 1948 graduate of Libbey High School in Toledo. Following high school she worked at Owens Illinois in Toledo until her children were born when she became a full time stay at home mother. In the mid-70’s she went back to work for Nationwide Insurance in Rossford. She was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in East Toledo where she played the organ for over 25 years, sang in the choir for many years, worked in the church office administration, and was involved in many church functions on a regular basis. Ruth had a passion for music and would play the piano at Harborside Nursing Home for the residents. She also enjoyed bowling and playing cards with her close friends in the “Crazy Eights” and “Rinky Dinks” clubs for more than 50 years. Ruth also enjoyed traveling with family and friends all around the U.S. and in many other countries. One of her favorite past times was reading. Ruth would often read a novel in 3 to 5 days. She was involved with volunteer work at Lutheran Social Services, sponsored children in several different countries, loved animals (especially dogs) and was a loving care giver for ageing family members and personal friends. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
