Crawford, Ruth Louise, age 95, widow of George H. Crawford, was born in Hightstown, N.J. on July 5, 1914 and passed away on November 11, 2009 in Laguna Niguel, CA. She was a joyful realist who remained alert and independent till the end. She and her husband, George, lived in Mercerville, N.J. until 1993 where they were active in the community and members of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish. After her daughter entered college, she went back to school and landed a job with General Motors Delco Division, as an executive secretary, where she was a much valued employee. In 1993 Ruth and George resettled in Laguna Niguel, CA to be close to family. We loved having her and Grandpa George present at all family gatherings and celebrations. Her greatest gift was as a wife, mother, and homemaker. We will miss our beloved Grandmom’s wonderful wit, wisdom and warmth who always remained a ‘Jersey Girl’ at heart.
She is survived by her daughter, Mary and son-in-law, Serge; granddaughter, Brooke; grandson, Matthew and his wife, Grace; great-granddaughters, Anna and Lila and great-grandson, Lucas.
