Heaven has gained another angel. On Friday, October 9, 2020, Ruth Marie (Stoller) Rodrian, age 93, quietly passed away with Ann at her side. She is now reunited with Sylvester, her loving husband of 62 years.
Ruth was born March 31, 1927 in Algoma to the late William, Sr. and Mary (Cihlar) Stoller. She was their second of 11 children. She graduated from St. Mary’s Grade School and Algoma High School.
