It is with great sadness to inform you that Ruth A. Galvin, 86, passed away this morning August 9, 2017 at Arbor Terrace in Marietta Georgia. Ruth's request was not to have funeral or religious services as she was fond of saying "I don't need that" in fact, she said that of most of these worldly material things; she led a very simple life. Arrangements have been made and comments on Ruth's life can made at http://georgia.funeralnetcustomsolutions.com/obituary Ruth was born in Cincinnati Ohio on January 9, 1931. She graduated from Walnut Hills High School and attended the University of Cincinnati College of Design Art and Architecture. She moved to New York City when she was 20 with her husband Gene Galvin. While in New York she was a fashion model for several years before settling on career at Charles H. Beckley Inc. Handmade Custom Bedding where she worked until retirement in 2006 at the age of 75. Ruth was the daughter of Jack and Ida Mae Young and cousin to Elba Stahl ( who was mother to Bill, Joe, Dan and Linda Huff), while we were growing up, she was always our Aunt Ruth who would send us the best Christmas gifts--always wrapped and purchased at Bloomingdales. Ruth's passion was her cats. Nobody knows how many she had but it was a tradition in her family. She always said "everybody needs a cat--they are the most perfect pet". In 2008 she and her three cats moved from her Manhattan apartment located at the 59th Street Bridge to an apartment in Queens. In 2010 (with one cat- Willie), she moved to Atlanta Georgia where she spent lots of time with her "cousin" Bill's family. Ruth is survived by her cousins Bill, Dan, Joe and Linda. Her great cousins Lindsey, Stephanie, Madison, Ansley, Brandon, Rebecca and Adam and her cat Millie.
