Ruth E. Reinhart

January 27, 1926 – September 14, 2022

Wife of Pastor Morris Reinhart, Ruth Elaine Reinhart (Mannor), born on January 27, 1926, went to be with her Lord on September 14, 2022.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of forty-nine years, Reverend Morris Reinhart; her parents, Jerry and Etta Mannor; brothers Clare Turner, Ray Mannor, and Robert Mannor; and the second love of her life, Melvin Ellis.

Ruth is survived by her daughters, Linda Denyes of TN, and Carol (Timothy) Magers of MI; five grandchildren, Kimberly (Walter) McBee, Scott (Kelley) Williams, Michelle (Erik) Schnurstein, Timothy (Julia) Magers, and Matthew Magers; twelve great-grandchildren, Kyle (Trista) McBee, Hunter Winters, Michael McBee, Brittany Kesler, Kristen Williams, Eden Schnurstein, Marissa Schnurstein, Owen Magers, Leah Magers, Kaitlyn Magers, Peyton Magers and Brady Magers; two great-great-grandchildren, Mason Kesler and Boston McBee; and her brother, Jerry Mannor.

Ruth graduated from Petersburg High School and married Morris in 1945. She was a devoted wife and a loving mother to their two daughters, Linda and Carol. Her husband Morris entered the ministry in 1961 and together they served South Community, Marne, Hartford, Litchfield, Allen, Indian River, Pelston, Bangor, and Portage Prairie. Ruth was active in the UMC Women’s Society. In retirement, you could often find Ruth playing cards and shuffleboard with family and friends. She loved spending time with her family, especially watching them grow and attending their special occasions and events. Ruth will be remembered for her kind, gentle spirit and her strong work ethic. She was always looking to offer a helpful hand to others.

A memorial service will be held November 5, 2022 at 11 am at the Jonesville United Methodist Church, with burial at Mount Hope Cemetery in Litchfield. Arrangements are entrusted to the Eagle Funeral Home-George White Chapel in Litchfield.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Angela Hospice in Livonia, MI or St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN are sincerely appreciated.
