Ruth (Fletcher) Scribner, age 92, formerly of Trumbull, stepped into heaven on Jan. 4, 2019 at the Jewish Home in Bridgeport.
Ruth was born in Birmingham, Alabama to the Samuel and Ruth Fletcher and later moved to Connecticut. She graduated from Wellesley College with a degree in zoology and bacteriology.
Ruth married Albert Scribner on March 17, 1951. The joy of her life was being a devoted wife and loving mother. She raised a very close-knit and happy family.
Ruth’s most important relationship was with Jesus Christ whom she loved and walked with for over 50 years. She was a longtime parishioner of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Darien, where she was involved in Bible studies, coordinating weddings and serving on the mission committee.
She is survived by her four children: Kenneth Scribner and his wife, Deb Hunt-Scribner; Margo Gulemi and her husband, Gary; Daniel Scribner and his wife, Mary; and Holly Caiello and her husband, Kevin; nine cherished grandchildren: Rachael, Christie, James (and his wife, Nina, who had Ruth’s great grandchild, Rebecca), Stephen, Katie, Julie, Timothy (and his wife, Sarah), Daniel (and his wife, Mary), and Benjamin.
