Ruth Anne Orr

February 11, 1935 ~ March 16, 2019 (age 84)


Ruth Anne Orr, 84, of Zanesville, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, March 16th, 2019, at her home.  Ruth Anne is survived by her husband of 60 years, Roy G. Orr, and their three daughters, Tamara Orr, Susan (Bob) Richardson, and Leslie (Curt) Steinlage, and eight grandchildren; Seth (Katie) Morris, Samuel Morris, Luke Morris, Phillip Lohr, Jenny Lohr, Samantha Whetsell, Tucker Steinlage, and Sydney Steinlage; three great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ruth Anne was raised in Junction City, Ohio and is preceded in death by her parents Louis Leonard Fink Sr. and Hazel Fae Roberts Fink, and nine siblings, Louis Leonard Fink Jr., Mary Eleanor Hartshorn, Sarah Elizabeth “Betty” King, Helen Alice Sayre, John David Fink, Paul Richard Fink, Wilbert Joseph Fink, Robert Thomas Fink, and Wesley Warren Fink.  

She attended Ohio State University and worked as an executive secretary for the Ohio Adjutant General of the National Guard at Fort Hayes.   She was fifty-year member of Parthenia Chapter #124 Order of the Eastern Star, where she served as Worthy Matron and District Deputy Matron for District #27. 

Ruth Anne was a devoted wife, mother and sister. Her delightful countenance and cheerful smile made everyone feel welcome and included. She enjoyed singing alto in the church choir, quilting with her sisters and experimenting with new recipes because it justified her buying the latest gadgets and gizmos from Williams and “Samona.”  Her pleasure was adventure traveling with her husband and their two cats, Mia and Big Boy, in their airstream camper.  She will be truly missed by all those whose lives she touched.
