Ruth A. (Butterweck) Slichter

Obituary

Ruth A. (Butterweck) Slichter, 96 of Cumru Township, passed away peacefully in her residence on Monday, May 2, 2022. Born in Reading on Jan 19, 1926, she was the daughter of the late John C. and Sadie (Lorah) Butterweck.

Ruth was employed at the former Leininger Knitting Mills in Mohnton, and for many years as a cafeteria working at various Governor Mifflin elementary schools.  She was a member of the Russel M. Butterweck Marine Corps League Ladies Auxiliary and a former member of the Reading Moravian Church.

She loved all creatures big and small (except snakes) and particularly enjoyed watching the birds and deer in her yard.

She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Marlene (Slichter) Watts, her grandson Ryan Watts and her great granddaughters Kaia and Amber Watts, all of whom she loved dearly.  She made being a mom look easy.

In addition to her parents, Ruth was preceded in death by her four brothers, Russel Butterweck, Ernest Butterweck, Nevin Butterweck and Donald Butterweck and two sisters, Pearl Myers and Grace Bard.

Relatives and Friends are invited to attend her Funeral Service on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. from Giles & Yeckley Funeral Home and Crematorium, Inc., 21 Chestnut Street, Mohnton. 

A viewing will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the funeral home.

Burial will be at Pleasant View Cemetery.
