Ruth Towne

 

Ruth Towne, 47, of Beecher Road in Granville passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 12, 2009, at her home, surrounded by her family after battling a long illness. 

 

Born on May 19, 1961, Ruthie was the youngest daughter of the late Arthur and Virginia (Montgomery) Mercure of Hartford.  She married  Eric Towne of Granville on Oct. 10, 1987.   She most recently worked for Greenstone Slate of Poultney, Vt., as an office manager. 

Ruthie most enjoyed spending time with her family, as well as spending time outdoors doing yard work, four wheeling and snowmobiling and she was especially fond of her dogs.  She will be most remembered for her caring nature, her easy smile and her willingness to help anyone in need. 

Aside from her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Stephen Mercure.

She is survived by her husband Eric of Granville; her two daughters, Tara Mercure-McKenzie and her husband, Andrew, of Ithaca, N.Y., and Lisa Towne of Granville; her brother and sisters, Ronald Mercure and his wife, Diane, Janet Rock and her  husband, Stanley, and Marjorie Baker and her husband Dennis, all of Hartford as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. 

A funeral service was held on Sunday, March 15 at 1:30 p.m. at  the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville. Friends and family were invited to call at the funeral home on Saturday, March 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. Burial will be held in the spring at Morningside Cemetery in Hartford, NY.
