Ruth Warren

Oct. 20, 1926 — Feb. 15, 2014

Ruth S. Warren, 87, died peacefully in her home at Sunrise of Rocklin on Feb. 15, 2014. She was surrounded by loving caregivers and smiled her way through her days there. She was born Oct. 20, 1926, and raised in Chicago, Ill. She always enjoyed helping others and her first job after high school was as a secretary. At a roller skating rink in Chicago, she met her husband of 64 years, Lee Warren. They were married on Sept. 11, 1947.

Ruth continued to work in the clerical field as she supported her husband through college at Iowa State University. Following Lee’s graduation, the couple moved several times, eventually settling in Citrus Heights, Calif. Of all of her lifetime jobs, she enjoyed being a mother and grandmother most of all. She was a full-time wife, mother, chef, decorator, Cub Scout leader and school volunteer.

Ruth and Lee loved the outdoors and often took the family camping in their Econoline van that had a kitchenette and slept five. She even tried backpacking once. When her children were in high school, she realized that she needed to find another career. Following her passion to care for others, she went back to school and became a Licensed Vocational Nurse. She was very proud of her 20-year career as a nurse.

Ruth and Lee moved into their dream home in Placerville, Calif., in 1983. She stayed busy with a variety of activities, including investigating her family’s genealogy, ceramics, golfing, gardening and baking. She and Lee continued to travel. They purchased a small RV for relatively shorter trips, in addition to traveling internationally.

As Lee’s health deteriorated, Ruth cared for him. They moved to Sunrise of Rocklin in 2011 and Lee died in January 2012. Though her own health was declining, Ruth continued to be active in the Sunrise community. She enjoyed “talking to the ladies” and was spoiled by her many wonderful caretakers. On the day after Valentine’s day she answered Lee’s call for her to come home.

Ruth’s memorial will be at Sunrise of Rocklin, on May 31, from 1 to 3 p.m. She is survived by her three children, Bob (Lori) Warren, John (Brenda) Warren and Carolee (Marc) McCaslin; and five grandchildren, Ashlee, Scott, Nick (Caitlin), Corey and Mitchell. Contact Bob Warren at 916-806-0046, or John Warren at 920-246-6288 for more information.
