Ruth Marie Berglin

— Ruth Marie Berglin

  On February 28, 1970, the world became a brighter place.  On February 18, 2013, Jesus, in his incredible, unbounded love, brought Ruth safely home.  In that far too brief time, she had a tremendous impact in a real and meaningful way. She touched more lives than we will ever know.  She was so wonderful, in so many ways, daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, teacher, author, musician, and more.  She loved and gave so much.  She was content.  She freely shared the incredible love of Jesus and his sacrifice and guidance for us all.  She loved teaching and leading the Jesus Cares group because they gave love freely and easily.  She was the definition of "better" in "better half".  Through she excelled in many areas, she shined brightest as a mother of two precious daughters.

  She is survived by husband Joel, daughters, Janinya and Katriana; parents, Robert and Emily Armstrong of Belle Plaine; sisters, Charlotte (Loren) Stegman of New Hope, Rachel (Chad) Grambsch of Columbus, WI, and Paula (Erik) Arndt of Sheboygan, WI; and so many others who may have been more distant with their blood line, but were within her heart and prayers.

  Memorial services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Mankato.  Visitation will be held from 12:00 noon until the time of service.  Memorials are preferred to Jesus Cares Ministries or to donor's choice.
