Ruth Elouise Robertson

Ruth Elouise Robertson was my grandmother.  She was born on May 19, 1923 in Penfield, NY.  She was the second child of Thomas King Robertson and Ruth Fredia Oestreich. She had four siblings;  June, Beth, Thomas, and Wilma.  She spent her childhood living in St. Catherines in Canada and also Webster, NY.  When she was 20, she married Vincent (Budd) Arthur Haskins, son of Frederick Edward Haskins and Katherine VanLare.  They were married on September 4, 1943.  Budd and Ruth lived on Union Street in Marion, NY.  They had four children, Mark, Debi, Scott and Wendy.  She died on September 8, 2011 from cancer.  She is buried in the Marion Cemetery.

Today would have been her 90th birthday.  Happy Birthday Grandma - I miss you!  I wish we could be sitting on your porch watching the people walk by at least for just a couple of whiles.
