Ruth Busch Obituary

Ruth Rebecca Maria Heinsohn, given life by her Creator was born on July 21, 1919, the child of Johann and Augusta (Weiss) Heinsohn. On August 14, 1919 she received the gift of Holy Baptism and became a child of God. On March 25, 1934, she confessed her faith and was confirmed in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Langenburg. She received the gracious gift of the Lord’s life-giving body and blood.

Ruth was joined together in Holy Matrimony to (Carl) Walter Busch. Walter and Ruth were married on August 16, 1941 in Beresina Lutheran Church, Beresina, Saskatchewan. They lived in the Beresina area, on the farm until 1948, when they moved into Langenburg.

Ruth and Walter were blessed with the gift of three children: Janice Ruth Elizabeth, Carole Yvonne, and Walter James.

On the morning of November 14, 2022, God blessed Ruth a holy death and took her home to rest in the arms of Jesus to await the resurrection of the dead.

Ruth was predeceased by her husband of nearly 65 years, Walter in 2006 and her son-in-law, Wally Veal, also in 2006. She is also predeceased by her parents, Johann Dietrich (Dick) Heinsohn in 1978 and Augusta (Weiss) Heinsohn in 1981.

Ruth was one of 9 siblings, predeceased by all, except one sister; her brothers, Ewaldt in 1993 and his wife Margaret in 2007, Werner in 1973, Elizabeth (Betty) in 1980, Ida (Edie) in 1998 and her husband John in 1997, Eleanor (Ellie) in 2011 and her husband Norbert in 2003, Hertha in 2006 and her husband Malby in 2012, Helene in 2018 and her husband Jim in 2020, and brother-in-law, Ernest Stech in 2008.  She was also predeceased by Walter’s parents, his 14 siblings and their respective spouses.

Ruth is survived by her three children, Janice (Busch) Veal, Carole Busch and Walter Busch, as well as her three grandchildren: Susanne (Trevor) Nicolay, David (Gina) Veal and Trina (Corey) Popowich. Ruth was blessed with six great-grandchildren: Jake and Carl Nasewich, Lucas and Laila Veal and Alex and Chloe Popowich. Ruth is also survived by her sister, Charlotte (Lottie) Stech, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

Ruth was a homemaker he entire life. She will be remembered for her caring nature; she was caregiver to many including her parents, her parents-in-law, her sister Betty and her husband, Walter in later years – a testament to her always wishing she could have become a nurse.

Ruth had phenomenal skills in sewing, crocheting and knitting – she often completed intricate projects without any pattern! Ruth was a terrific cook and baked amazing, yummy treats, including kűchen, strudel, delicious buns, chiffon and angel food cakes from scratch, to name a few. Granny also always baked favorite treats for her precious grandchildren on their birthdays; from donuts to chocolate chip cookies and jam jams. Ruth had many skills in the kitchen and was an expert canner; she did share her family secrets for making sauerkraut and cabbage rolls – without any recipes, of course.

Ruth’s family is full of immense gratitude for the gift of Ruth as a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and sister, for 103 years. Ruth, mom, granny will lovingly be remembered for her kind, caring nature; her long, full life will be celebrated!

Ruth is and will be missed by all who knew her, for the truly amazing human that she was.

Ruth's family - her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and sister Lottie thanks everyone for their love and support as we remember Ruth and celebrate her long, full life. Your kindness and thoughtfulness during this time is greatly appreciated. 
We would especially like to thank Pastor Barry Wood for being available for the family, Braendle-Bruce for their support and of course the staff of Centennial Special Care Home in Langenburg for the care they provided Ruth during her time there.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Ruth Rebecca Maria Busch?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Ruth's memory.
