Obituary

Ruth Stahl Gordon, 88, of Greensburg, passed away Thursday September 3, 2020 which is also the date of her wedding anniversary.  She was born July 31, 1932 in Greensburg. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin and Dorothy Stahl, her high school sweetheart, love of her life and husband of 57 years, Robert “Bob” Gordon, and her beloved sister, Romayne Dodds.  She was a graduate of Greensburg High School class of 1950.  After high school, Ruth began working as an executive secretary at ITE until she became a stay at home mother.  Ruth was a member of Maplewood  Presbyterian Church, where she served as both an Elder and a Deacon.  Her church family was an important part of her life.  Ruth had fun as a Girl Scout leader and was even brave enough to take her troop camping.  She was very proud to serve as the first woman elected to the Greensburg City Council.  When Bob retired from the Greensburg City Police Department, Ruth went back to work outside the home.  She was the Office Manager for TRC Temporary Agency, and she worked for the American Cancer Society.
