In memory of
Ruth Gershowitz Yermovsky
It is with great sadness that our mom, Ruth Gershowitz Yermovsky, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 16, 2017. She was married to Ralph Yermovsky for 62 years and raised a family of Susan, Harvey and Hollye in Waycross, Georgia. Our mom was born in Brooklyn, NY and moved south as a young bride. Early in life she sold Avon and Tupperware and worked for Singers Medical Business Bureau and ended her career as office manager of a well established dental office in Waycross. She was active in a small synagogue, Waycross Hebrew Center. Her interests include Bridge, Women's Club, Garden Club and Little Theatre. She was in multiple plays, including Fiddler on the Roof and Crossing Delancey. At 84, she starred in "Grandma's Gone Wild", a movie written and directed by SCAD students. She made the spotlight again with appearances in ads for 5 Star Retirement Communities in South Magazine. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and son-in-law, Irv Seidman. She is survived by her daughter, Susan Seidman of Atlanta, Harvey Yarmon and his wife, Marilyn of Augusta, GA and Hollye McAdams and her husband Billy of Savannah; grandchildren, Brian Yarmon, Erica Aronson and her husband Alex, Rachel Wilson and her husband Adam, and Ben McAdams and his wife, Taylor; four great-grandchildren and one more "on the way"; many nieces and nephews; she was a "special" mom to many. Our house was always open and shared to everyone with love, laughter and great advice. We thank all the stewards of mom's care at Marshview Senior Living and Marsh Haven for their love and support for the past 6 1/2 years. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made to: Waycross Hebrew Center, 610 Screven Ave., Waycross, GA 31501. A graveside service will be held at 1:00pm, Wednesday, April 19, at Bonaventure Cemetery.
