Obituary of Ruthmarie Weber
Our Lord and Saviour has called His servant home on Thursday, August 4, 2022. We are thankful to God for more than 100 years granted to her family of her loving presence.
Born in Kitchener on November 7, 1921 to Rev. Dr. John Schmieder and Margaret Poser, Ruthmarie was educated in Waterloo County including a degree from Waterloo College (predecessor to W.L.U.) and took up teaching at Suddaby School. She was married to Carl J. Weber in 1950 and was a devoted mother to her five children here in Waterloo County. She enjoyed summers spent at Lake Papineau for over 80 years.
Predeceased by her parents (1962, 1975), her brother Rev. Henry Schmieder (1976), and her husband (1991).
