Obituary for Ruby M. Hermenitt

Hermenitt, Ruby M.
Ruby Marie Hermenitt (Foote), age 78, of Delton, passed away on Sunday, December 23, 2018. Ruby was born in Grand Rapids on February 19, 1940, the daughter of Alfred and Elizabeth (Veeninga) Foote. Ruby was proud to be a homemaker to her family. She also worked as a teacher’s aide at Delton Kellogg Schools for many years. In her free time, Ruby enjoyed baking, sewing, reading, working on puzzles, decorating for the holiday, and having family visit her. She was a very skilled genealogist and loved being able to trace back many family generations. Ruby was very strong willed and quite a firecracker. She was preceded in death by her husband Ronald J. Hermenitt Sr. on April 9, 2013; brother Robert Foote; sisters: Charmaine Hoseth, Barbara Hall, and Susie Loew; and several brothers-in-laws and sisters-in-laws. Ruby is survived by her children: Ronald (Denise) Hermenitt Jr., Ryan (ex-wife Julie) Hermenitt, and Randy (Holley) Hermenitt; grandchildren: Ronald J. Hermenitt III, Ethan and Evan Hermenitt, Scott and Samantha Perysian; great grandchildren, Scott Perysian Jr., and Whitney Perysian; brothers: Marvin (Ruth) Foote, and Donald Foote; and many nieces and nephews. According to Ruby’s wishes cremation has taken place, and there will be no services.
