Ruth Ann Reierson

Ruth Ann Reierson, 88, of Laguna Park, passed away Thursday July 24, 2014 at the Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, August 2 at Lake Whitney Baptist Church located on Highway 3118 in Laguna Park with Pastor Joan Iker officiating. Ruth was born May 4, 1926, in Brooklyn New York, to Edward and Helen Schultz. She married R. C. Reierson, a WW2 soldier stationed in New York in 1946. After his discharge the couple moved to Texas and resided on his parent’s farm in the Live Oak community and then Cranfills Gap until his death in 1976. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Richard Schultz. She is survived by her brother, Dan Schultz and wife Dorothy of San Antonio; daughter, Carolyn Cheney and husband, Leon, of Laguna Park; son, Kenneth Reierson and wife, Iris, of Cranfills Gap; grandchildren, David Black, Larissa Montes, Ryan, Scott, Brooks, Trina and Daniel Reierson, and great-grandchildren, Lexi Montes, Kenny, Hank, Braxton, and Emma Reierson. Some may remember a Cranfills Gap newspaper she helped publish many years ago and others may remember her “Over the Hill” column with the Clifton Record. Until her health declined, she volunteered with the Child Protective Service, Bluebonnet Club and Bosque County Norwegian Society. Her passion for helping those in need led her to volunteer as the Laguna Park Angel Tree coordinator. In this capacity she was able to touch the lives of hundreds of families and she will be fondly remembered by the community, along with her friends and family. There was also a fun side of Ruth that she made pretty clear. She was a devoted, loyal Dallas Cowboy fan and Tony Romo was her hero. She cherished the books and pictures of the team which were prominently displayed around her house. She also loved country music, her favorite Elvis impersonator and had a passion for reading books. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home for their loving care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cranfills Gap Fire Department or West Shore Volunteer Fire Department or a charity of your choice. Clifton Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
