Ruth Ileen Scheel, age 84, passed away peacefully April 8, 2022 due to a very long battle with Dementia. She was born May 18, 1937 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Menno and Dena Oosting
Ruth loved to love on people. She loved Jesus and always put others before herself. She loved her family, grandchildren, great grandchildren, cooking, square dancing, puzzles of all kinds and going to church!
For many years Ruth worked at the State of Nebraska DHHS as the supervisor for the Vital Statistics department until she retired. In her retirement, she always found a way to stay busy whether it was taking on part-time jobs or serving the community, her family and her church.
Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” She loved the lord!
Ruth is survived by her two sons Paul Scheel and Mark Scheel, grandchildren Tia Scheel and Tiffany Brunt and great grandchild Terryen. All of these people she loved and touched deeply.
Please join us in celebrating her life!
