Ruth Elizabeth Roblee, 84, of Orlando, FL, stepped into Heaven on June 15, 2021 and is now with her Lord and Savior. She is in the arms of Jesus and has received her ultimate healing, There is no doubt that she was welcomed by all of Heaven as she heard her Heavenly Father say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
Ruth is a member of New Beginnings Church and has been a part of our church family since 2019. Over the past few months, with her declining health, her precious husband, Tom, has been lovingly taking care of her.
Ruth was born on September 25, 1936 in Jamestown, NY to Vallie & Eleanor Breth. She was the third of five children. She grew up in Jamestown where her mother was a good friend of Lucille Ball. After graduation from High School, she worked as a waitress at Claire's Restaurant.
Ruth was married to her first husband in 1956. One year later, she had her first son, Mark Hussey. She moved to Florida in 1960. In 1961, she had her second son, Robert (Bob) Hussey and moved into a new house in Clarcona, Florida.
Ruth divorced in 1975 and shortly thereafter started Nursing School. She graduated the top of her class. On January 19, 1976, she went to work for Florida Hospital as an LPN. Ruth retired from Nursing in 1998.
In September, 1976, Ruth met her second husband, Tom Roblee. They were married November 26, 1977 and celebrated their 43rd Anniversary this year.
Ruth is survived by her husband, Tom, two sons (Mark & Bob), twelve grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by the following siblings: Lucille Cole, James Breth, and Ronald Breth. She was preceded in death by Vallie Breth (father), Eleanor Breth (mother), and Arden Breth (brother).
Most of all, Ruth is a born-again Christian. She brought many people to Christ during her lifetime. It is with great confidence that we know she now resides in Heaven today!
Ruth will be greatly missed by all. But, for those who believe in Jesus, death is not an ending, but rather a beginning. It is not defeat, but victory! "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."
