Ruth Anne Rothman

Ruth Anne, Rothman, age 75 a resident of Brewster, died Wednesday, January 8, 2014, at her home.

Ruth was born June 19, 1938, in Tarrytown to Isadore and Marcia Hoffenberg. While she spent her early years in Tarrytown, she eventually moved to Elmsford and Mount Kisco, where she raised her family. Ruth was an incredibly loving and giving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her creative touch was on display whether in her work or in her home. She brought beauty to the world. Ruth found great joy in expressing herself through gift giving and letter writing. The letters she wrote to friends and family were legendary; detailed, loving and humorous.

Ruth loved her boys more than anything ... Bobby, Jay and Richie. She loved Dana, Ruthanne and Jenny, the boys’ wives. She loved her husband’s children like they were her own; Annie and Lisa and their husbands Brian and Michael. And she loved all 15 of her grandchildren and step grandchildren: Nikki, Alissa, Hayley, Jack, Rosie, Reid, Jason, Zach, Sami, Mia and Ross, Jack, Kyra, Emma and Tess.

She is reunited with her husband and best friend Michael Hennelly in Heaven.

A visitation was held Sunday, January 12, followed immediately by a Service at Beecher Funeral Home, 1 Putnam Avenue, Brewster. www.beecherfuneralhome.com
