Juanita H. ‘Nita’ Ruh

Juanita “Nita” Ruh was born to eternal life and joined her husband Woody on Sept. 10, 2022, at Cedar Community in West Bend.

She was born on April 30, 1925, to her late beloved parents Arno Stecker and Florence Johnson.

Juanita loved the farm she grew up on with her parents and three brothers, and fell in love with Woody, the love of her life, when she was 14 years old. They were united in marriage in 1946 and were blessed with their beloved four children, Susan, Barbara, Mary and Paul (Amy).

She loved being a hairdresser, which satisfied her desire to be surrounded by others. Her desire to be with others and to be of service also led to her involvement and volunteering in her church and at Cedar Community.

Juanita is survived by her four children and nine grandchildren, Angie (Scott), Heather (Doug), Tanya (Corey), Eric, Matthew (Marlee), Jonathon “JJ”, Kathryn, Austin and Paige. She is further survived by many beloved great-grandchildren, friends and family.

Juanita was preceded in death by her parents, beloved husband and brothers Jerry (Beth), Lyle “Boots” (Elinor) and Wayne (Audrey).

Visitation will be held for Juanita at St. Luke Lutheran Church, 4860 Arthur Rd. in Slinger, from 1 to 1:45 p.m. followed by a memorial service at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, 2022. A coffee hour will be after the service from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

There will be a private burial at Immanuel Cemetery in Cedarburg.
