In memory of
RUTH (WALSH) ENDRES
age 87, passed peacefully on Monday, October 7, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born July 22, 1932 in Boston, Massachusetts and graduated from Milton High School and Simmons University. She received a Master's in Social Work from the University of Michigan, where she met her husband of 39 years, Dr. Bernard Endres. Ruth worked as a medical social worker at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Catholic Charities before moving to Lake County in 1961. She was a devoted, loving mother with a great sense of humor. Her passion for helping people carried over into her active involvement with the Christ Child Society of the Western Reserve, for which she served as president for a year. Ruth also tutored and encouraged students at St. Mary's school in Painesville, and volunteered for other causes in which she deeply believed. She was a member of the Lake County Women's Medical Auxiliary, St. Mary of the Assumption and St. Gabriel parishes, and long-time member of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Ruth enjoyed spending time with family and friends, genealogy, dancing, playing golf and bridge, reading, traveling, and walks with her dog, Trevor. Music especially brought her joy. She sang with the St. Gabriel's church choir and Wildwood Singers. Survivors include her children: Dr. Michael J. (Lisa Kellythorne) Endres, Steven J. Endres, Katherine A. (Jeffrey L. Huxtable) Endres, Paul J. Endres, and Mary (John) Moriarty; nephews: William (Rita), Kevin (Dee), and David Walsh and their families; nieces: Janice (Daryl) Cugini, and Mary (Max) Crossley and their families; Aunt June Endres; many cherished cousins; and lifelong friends Liz and Norm Hansen. Preceding Ruth in death is her husband: Dr. Bernard J. Endres; parents: Henry W. and Gertrude Walsh, Sr., and brother: Henry W. Walsh, Jr. The family will receive friends 4-8 pm Friday, October 11, 2019 at Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 8466 Mentor Ave. Mentor, OH. 44060. A funeral mass will be held 10 am Saturday, October 12, 2019 at St. Gabriel Catholic Church, 9925 Johnnycake Ridge Rd, Mentor, OH. 44060. Please meet at the church.
