Ruth J. Mattucci, 92 of Virginia, Minn. went to be with her Lord and Savior, Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.
She was born to the late Matt and Elizabeth Kunnari, Aug. 13, 1921, in New York Mills, Minn.
She graduated from Deer Creek High School in Minnesota in 1940.
Ruth married the late Samuel S. Mattucci in 1983 and she was a long time resident of Mesa, Ariz., before relocating to Buhl, Minn., in 2004.
Her family and friends will miss the twinkle in her eye and the gracious smile that she had for everyone she met. Ruth had many talents that she used to serve the Lord in a volunteer capacity.
