Margaret Claire Ruhme

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Margaret Claire Ruhme of Bloomington, age 90, died March 28 from upper respiratory failure. Preceded in death by husband Dick and son, "Baby Joe"; parents Edward and Linnie McNevin, and brother Ken McNevin. Survived by her sister, Justine Kellogg; children Paul (Mary) Ruhme; Marie Ruhme (Mike Stoulil); Renee McGivern; Annette (Bart) Ellson; Suzanne (Ron) Hermes; Dan (Jill) Ruhme. She'll be fondly remembered by grandchildren Ben, Molly, Nick, Michael, Marcus, Charlie, Grant, Liz, Raquel, Bridget, and great-granddaughter Claire. Also nieces and nephews Ed, Eileen, Jim, Linda, Kevin, Mary Claire, and Sean, and friends and admirers too numerous to mention. A celebration of her life is set for April 11 at Nativity of Mary Catholic Church, Bloomington. Visitation 9-10 a.m., service at 10, followed by a light lunch. Interment at Fort Snelling at 12:30 p.m.   Claire was delightful, feisty, inquisitive, and devoted to her family, friends, and Catholic faith. She had an extraordinary ability to put people at ease with her humor, a wink, and genuine interest in them. She never gossiped, complained, worried, or doubted the goodness of people. Claire had a wonderful life, and we are profoundly grateful to have shared it with her. Instead of flowers, memorials can be sent to VEAP, 9600 Aldrich Avenue, Bloomington, Minn., 55420
