Ruth Marie Falbo, 80, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Tuesday, April 19, 2016.

Ruth was born in Everettville, W.Va., and graduated from Morgantown High School.

A dedicated and loving wife and mother who cared for her children, Ruth held the most difficult job ever created: Being a military wife; she had to be her family’s everything for those times when her husband had to be away overseas for extended periods. Ruth was a member of the Ford’s Colony Ladies Golf Association and was an advocate for the Dream Catchers Therapeutic Riding Association.

Left behind to cherish her memory are her husband of 62 years, John J. Falbo Sr.; four children, Joyce Forman, Linda Williams, John Falbo II and Susan Shenkle; and eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Memorial services and interment will be held in Arlington National Cemetery at a future date to be announced.
