Ruth Osborne

Ruth D. Osborne of Clinton Township Michigan passed away on April 22, 2019 at the age of 93. Ruth was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, John Henry Osborne, and her daughter Karen Osborne. She is survived by her daughter Cathy (Larry) Boice and grandchildren Renata (Troy) Osborne, Jo-Dee (Nolan) Devaux, John (Cindy) Osborne, Stephen (Ginger) Boice, Christopher (M.J.) Boice and Geoffrey Boice, as well as 10 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.

Affectionately known as “Grandmommy” to many, Ruth took care of many family members over the years. In addition to her contagious sense of humor, her loving smile could light up an entire ball-park. She was an avid bowler, loved to play cards and was one of the biggest Detroit Tigers fans in the metro Detroit area. She also loved her Red Wings and would occasionally cheer on the Detroit Pistons (depending on their performance).

While there will not be an immediate service, Ruth will be laid to rest on a family plot in Kentucky on a where she will be reunited with her loving husband and daughter.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution in her name to Meals on Wheels of Macomb County Michigan.
