4 Condolences to Ruth Adeline Bauserman Long

  1. Laura Bauserman Revitz (First Cousin) says:

    She was a wonderful friend and cousin who research and contributed volumes to the Bauserman Family History. She had the Bauserman dry sense of humor and was a walking historian of Valley families. We have all missed her at the reunions.
    May she rest in peace.

  2. Karen Mehring Magee (niece) says:

    I thank God for the cherished memories I have of Aunt Ruth from the time I was a little girl to present time. She was such a caring family member from spending so much time and effort on the best printed family history I have ever seen (as noted by Laura above) to little gestures such as the ceramic Halloween pumpkin she made for me decades ago, which has traveled with me over the years to my current home in Texas. I am saddened to hear of her passing but take solace in knowing she is with her Lord and that she was so well cared for by her beloved sons, Wayne and Gary, and their families. Although distance precludes my attendance at the funeral, I will be with you in prayer and in thought.

    May you rest in piece my dear, sweet, caring Aunt Ruth. And may those of us left to mourn your passing take solace and comfort in the arms of our Heavenly Father. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

  3. Mary Shepard Strosnider (Foster Sister) says:

    Ruth was a fun as was her dear husband, Bill. They worked so well together and built their first home in Indian Head, MD, as I recall. They were then ready to start their family and two dear sons soon came along. I remember my 4th birthday, when Ruth got me a set of Modern dishes that had a teapot, creamer & sugar and service for 4 in pretty 1940′s colors. I still treasure that set and the fun we had with tea parties and such. Her brother Pep & some friends were at mom’s on that birthday and Ruth took me by the hand and said let’s fill your bank. I still have my silver dollar from that trek to the garage where a car repair was underway by some handsome young men. We visited them in Penn Yan, NY, in Kensington, MD, and often in Martinsburg, WV, where Bill was delighted to give a ride in his old 1912 Hudson. They loved to play a card game called Manipulation and the laughter during that game was absolutely precious. Ruth was so proud of her family and the violet that never stopped blooming for 60 years. Ruth, you really lived life and will be missed but I just know that heaven will be even better with you blooming up there. Amen.
