Ruth Marie Colborn

December 4, 1926 - January 13, 2013

Ruth Marie Colborn, 86, of Batavia, passed away peacefully January 13, 2013 at her home.  She was born December 4, 1926 in Batavia, the daughter of Ted and Mary (nee Reif) Weirich.  She was united in marriage to Louie Colborn on June 10, 1950.  She lived at her home on McKee Street for over 50 years.  She and Louie built the house together, but Ruth made it into a home.  Their door was always open for family and friends.  In her earlier years you could find her busy milking cows, slopping pigs, and feeding chickens on their farm.  In her later years if she wasn’t busy tending to her flowers and vegetable garden, you could find her at a garage sale with her sister, Butz.  She was much loved, and will be missed by all.   Hopefully they have Hershey Kisses in Heaven. She is survived by her two daughters, Donna Mae (Daniel) Campbell, and Mary Maher; 9 grandchildren, Marci (nee Campbell) Ramsey, Benjamen Campbell, Jay Maher, Kristen (nee Maher) Winslow, Casey Bridges, Bill Colborn, Karie Colborn, Kate Colborn, and T.J. Colborn; 12 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; her sister, Bernice (Frank) Monteleone; and her brother, Clarence (Jacqueline) Weirich.  In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband Louie Colborn; her son, Ted Colborn; her sisters, Catherine Gough, Gen Tintinger; her brothers Ray and Bill Weirich.  Visitation will be held Sunday, January 20, 2013 from 2:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M. at Moss Family Funeral Home, 209 S. Batavia Ave. (Rte. 31) in Batavia.  Funeral services will begin with prayers from the funeral home at 10:00 A.M. on Monday, January 21, 2013 before processing to Holy Cross Catholic Church, 2300 West Main Street, in Batavia to celebrate the Funeral Mass at 10:30 A.M.  Interment will follow in Resurrection Cemetery in Geneva.
