    • Ruth I. Young (Dingeldein), age 95, of Appleton, passed away Sunday, February 28, 2016. She was born on March 13, 1920 in the Town of Heartland to the late John and Ida (Richter) Dingeldein.

      Ruth married the love of her life, Gilbert on August 22, 1942 and together they were blessed with nine children. Ruth was a house keeper at Lawrence University for thirteen years before her retirement in 1983. Once retired she found many ways to keep busy; one of which was volunteering at St. Vincent de Paul. She enjoyed sewing and quilting with the ladies at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Ruth also found great joy in gardening, reading and baking. Ruth would often bake cupcakes for family, friends and neighbors. Above all Ruth cherished her family and her fondest memories are those of her grandchildren.

She is further survived by twenty-seven grandchildren, forty-seven great- grandchildren, one great great-grandchild and many more nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends.
