Obituary for Ruth J. Gilmore

September 27, 2017
Morrisville, Pennsylvania


Heaven opened its gates for Ruth J. Gilmore on September 27, 2017. She was 90 years young.

Ruth loved working with her hands, sewing gowns for weddings, outfits for her grandchildren, knitting Christmas stockings, creating items for craft shows and gifts as well as decorating and redecorating her homes in Fairless Hill, Cocoa Beach, FL, and Morrisville. Her family meant the world to her and she was so very proud of each of them. She looked forward to every occasion when they could all be together. She was very gregarious, stopping to speak to anyone who caught her eye and she deeply enjoyed the fellowship with the members of the Morrisville Methodist Church. She will be sadly missed not only by her family but by her many friends, some new and some whom she's had for over 75 years.

Born in Charleroi, PA, to the late Constant and Eugenie (Pireaux) Reconnu, Ruth was the wife of the late Charles E. Gilmore and mother of the late Edward C. Gilmore. She was predeceased by her brothers John, Ferdinand, and Clement Reconnu and her sisters Isabell Soltis and Leona Openshaw.

Ruth is survived by her sons Kenneth G. Gilmore (Ruth M.) and Dan A. Gilmore (Patricia A.), daughter-in-law Ellen L Gilmore, her grandchildren Scott E. Gilmore (Susan), Renae J.Kulak, Timothy C. Gilmore (Allison), Eric K. Gilmore (Rachael), Jeffrey M. Gilmore, Michael C. Gilmore (Nicole), Craig D. Gilmore, Sean A. Gilmore (Janis) and Rachel A. Gilmore. She also has 7 great-grandchildren, Emilia, Carter, Natalie, Faith, Kyle, Olivia and Hope, and many nieces and nephews.

Ruth's life will be celebrated on Saturday, 10/7/2017, at 11:00 AM with services at 12:00 at the Morrisville Methodist Church, Taft Ave + Maple Ave, Morrisville, PA.
