Ruth A. Bartelt

September 16, 1927 - January 3, 2019

Bartelt, Ruth Anselm; age 91, of Tarpon Springs, Florida left her earthly home surrounded by her loving family on January 3, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, David Carver Bartelt. Ruth was born on September 16, 1927 in Almond, Wisconsin. She is survived by 4 children, Susan Jacobson(Barry), Kathy Skaliotis(Phil), David Bartelt(Lucille) and Patty Tagarelli(Mike) 8 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Ruth grew up on a farm in Almond and moved to Wild Rose, Wisconsin when she was 4 years old. She met her husband, David at the University of Wisconsin where they married. She moved to St. Petersburg, Florida in 1956 and settled two years later in Tarpon Springs, Florida. She raised her family and lived there until 2015, when she moved to Coral Oaks in Palm Harbor, Fl. Ruth was a charter member of St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church in Tarpon Springs and was actively involved until the last 5 years when she was no longer able to serve. For years, she and David would go to Wisconsin to enjoy the beauty, cool weather and fishing that was available in that party of the country. Their family and friends enjoyed spending time with them there each year. Ruth also was an avid knitter. She was known to have yarn and needles stored in many parts of her home along with many knitting projects going on at the same time. She loved spending time with her family.
The family would like to thank the staff at Coral Oaks assisted living for their care and support over the years. We would also like to thank moms private caregiver, Kerry, for her loyal, dependable, and loving care.
Visitation will be held at St. Timothy Lutheran Church 812 East Tarpon Avenue on Tuesday, January 8th from 10:00-12:00 with the funeral service to follow at 12:30.
