Annette Kruth

Dec. 16, 1922 — April 28, 2013

On April 28, 2013, Annette Kruth left this world for her eternal home in Heaven. Although she will be missed by friends and family here she is now at home with the Lord. She was born on Dec. 16, 1922, in the small rice farming community of Richvale, Calif. Her father was A.J. Lofgren, the local chiropractor and doctor. As the youngest of five children, with four brothers, she grew up loving outdoor activity, including swimming, fishing and hiking. Their home was a center of activity in the small town, where everyone knew everyone else.

Annette graduated from high school in Biggs, Calif., and attended college in Chico and Sacramento, where she studied business. She met Alfred Kruth, a young University of California engineering student, and married him in 1943. Al served in the military during World War II and after the war completed his engineering studies. He held several engineering jobs and was the City Engineer in Ukiah, Calif., for 27 years until his retirement.

Al and Annette had five children. They were blessed with 13 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. They enjoyed hosting more than 13 exchange students from countries including Turkey, Sweden, Belgium, Australia and Brazil. After Al’s retirement, they were able to travel extensively and visit the home countries of each of the students.

Service to others was a trademark of Annette’s life. Through her church, she was a driving force for collection of medical supplies to be sent to Africa. She was a coordinator for the Placerville Parkinson’s Association group for many years and provided transport and assistance to many members. Her smiling demeanor will be sorely missed.

Family was always a big part of Annette’s life and she is survived by her children, Maurice and Lois Kruth of El Dorado Hills, Calif., Raymond and Ildiko Kruth of Reno, Nev., Warren and Julie Kruth of Felton, Calif., Norma and Paul Eggli of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Andrea and Aaron MacMillan of Antelope, Calif.; and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A service celebrating Annette’s life will be held at 2 p.m., on Saturday, May 4, at Discovery Hills Evangelical Free Church, 4270 Shingle Springs Road in Shingle Springs, Calif. She requested that contributions in her memory be made to Campus Crusade for the ministries of her grandchildren, Thomas MacMillan or Keith MacMillan (cru.org).
