Ruth, The Resident AnglerOctober 18, 2017 | Residence at Glen Riddle
Ruth Pursh grew up with thirteen siblings. She enjoyed all of the adventures she got to experience with her brothers and sisters but one of her favorite pastimes was fishing. Out on the water Ruth and her clan would laugh tease and have an all around good time catching fish.
When Ruth got married she made it a point to keep the family fishing tradition alive. Ruth and her husband often took their four sons out fishing continuing to make memories and helping them to fall in love with the sport just like she did in her youth.
Recently the Glen Riddle Senior Living staff heard about how Ruth missed relaxing by the water with a fishing rod in her hand. We surprised Ruth with a trip to Linvilla Orchards where she could reel in a few trout and enjoy the peaceful scenery. She relished the moment and smiled as she waited for a fish to catch. She reminisced and shared some of her most fondest memories with us. Seeing Ruth's eyes twinkle with joy made it a WOW! Moment in our book.
