Ruth M. Rushlow, 84, of Stoughton, went home to be with her Savior on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017, surrounded by her family. She was born in Shawano on Dec. 14, 1932, the daughter of Richard and Elsa Tonn.
Ruth was baptized and confirmed at St. James Lutheran Church in Shawano, and graduated from Shawano High School. On Feb. 7, 1959, Ruth married Frederick Rushlow. In 1969, they moved to Stoughton, where they were active in the community and served as Syttende Mai king and queen in 1988.
