Ruth Klos

May 29, 1931 — Oct. 24, 2012

Ruth Alice Klos, a longtime resident of Rescue, passed away on Oct. 24, 2012, with family nearby. She was born on May 29, 1931, to Charles and Mary Alice Houston of Sutter, Calif. She was the youngest of nine children and was especially close to her mother Alice.

After high school graduation, Ruth studied and worked as a dental technician in Yuba County. She met Larry Bray of Diamond Springs and together they had three children: Nancy, Charles and Jan. To the many neighborhood kids she helped raise, she was “Aunt Ruth.” In 1982 she married her soul mate, John J. Klos of Rescue, and increased their shared grown children with John Robert Klos and James Marshall Klos. Ruth and John celebrated their 30th anniversary in June 2012.

Ruth was a legendary softball player, wowing opposing teams with her pitching abilities when she was well into her 50s. She and John enjoyed RV traveling and visiting family in Washington and Idaho. She was a very active 50-plus-year member of the Order of Eastern Star, having served as Worthy Matron twice. She was also a member of Menzalia Temple Daughters of the Nile. Ruth joined John in Heaven just three-and-a-half months after his passing and they were both preceded in death by James M. Klos. Ruth is survived by her children, John R. Klos (Lory), Charles L. Bray (Karen), Nancy Bray Morehead and Jan Bray (Michael Bernedo). Their blessings include nine grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and one more on the way.

A celebration of Ruth’s life will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m., at the Rescue Community Center, officiated by Lyn France. Memorial donations may be made to the Rescue Community Center at PO Box 206, Rescue, CA 95672, or online at rescuecommunitycenter.com.
