Ruth Ann Osborn, 69, of Edwardsburg, formerly of Cassopolis, has gone home to be received by the Lord, Saturday, March 30, 2013, in Loyola Medical Center, Chicago.
Ruth Ann was born Sept. 8, 1943, in Niles to Clyde and Margie (Callahan) Cole. She survives. Her parents preceded her in death. She was also preceded by one brother- in-law, John Benjamin.
Ruth Ann was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her family was the most important thing to her. She loved her flowers. She and her husband would “disappear” for day trips to the beach. Ruth Ann was passionate about all animals, large or small, wild or domestic.
Ruth Ann will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Chris Osborn, of Edwardsburg; two daughters, Roxanne (Chris) Brimhall, of Cassopolis, Connie (Doug Lillie) Harrington, of Dowagiac; one son, Donald (Angela) Harrington, of Edwardsburg; 10 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren (with two on the way); one sister, Annette Benjamin, of Dowagiac; and one brother, Don (Barbara) Cole, of Niles; mother-in-law, Angelina Osborn, of Edwardsburg; and a host of nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will gather Saturday, April 20, 2013, from 4 until time of service at 5 p.m. in Connelly Chapel Wagner Family Funerals, 202 North Broadway St., Cassopolis, with a dessert and refreshment reception to follow in the Community Room of Chestnut Towers, 100 Chestnut St., Dowagiac.
The family prefers memorials to any organization that helps animals.
