Obituary for Ruth Shirley Link

Ruth Shirley Link – PHILADELPHIA – Ruth Shirley Sneddon Link, 83, of Philadelphia, PA, formerly of Titusville, NJ passed away peacefully Monday morning, May 21, 2018 surrounded by loved ones. Born 1934 in Trenton, NJ to Lucy Caputo and Walt Whitlock, she is predeceased by her loving husband, James P. Link, her son, David R. Sneddon and her two sisters, Doris Sine and Catherine Mapps. She is survived by her other children Kathleen (& Melvin) Apgar, Robert Sneddon (& Eve Jehle), Terry (& Martin) McCabe and Beth (& Michael) Ciarletta, 8 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren. She also leaves behind 2 sisters, Dot Cortina and Nancy Randall, many nieces and nephews and countless friends, especially those who have come to mean so much to her at Pennypack.
Ruth was a devoted and loving mother, sister and friend whose strength was unwavering. She loved to bake and could always be found in the kitchen making everyone’s favorite cake or pie for their birthday or special occasion. She also loved bingo, learning the game from her Grandmother as a young girl and continuing to play until weeks before her passing. Ruth was also an involved member with the Pennypack community and a dedicated servant to her church. Her kind and generous spirit will be greatly missed by all that knew her and remembered by all the lives she touched.
Calling hours will be held from 10–10:30 am, followed by a memorial service from 10:30 to 11:30am on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at Holmesburg United Methodist Church, 8118 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19136. Rather than a funeral, our mother chose to donate herself for the advancement of medical education and research through the Humanity Gift Registry. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Holmesburg UMC Church at the address above.
