Ruby (Barnick) Niemuth, age 96 of Marion entered into eternal life on Monday, March 12, 2018 at the Bridges of Appleton.
Blessed to be born as the daughter of Albert and Martha (Wepner) Barnick, on January 20, 1922, Ruby was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith at St. Paul Lutheran Church, where she continued as a life-long member. Growing up across the road from the church, she and her family had many enjoyable times involved in congregational life with family and friends. Following eighth grade graduation from Lake Michael School, Ruby chose to live in Marion with friends and graduated from Marion High School in 1940. She married Kenneth L. Niemuth on January 23, 1943, and together they owned and operated Green Valley and DuPont Cheese factories in the area. Ruby also worked as a High School secretary in Marion for several years. She was active in her church serving on the council, teaching Sunday School and attended Bible studies. She enjoyed her family visits and events, reading, traveling, playing bridge and caring for her yard and the birds that came to the feeders.
