SIA Newsletter 2 7 2012 - Obituary for Doris "Ruth" Welker

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

Doris "Ruth" Welker, resident of Cinnaminson, N.J. and Bayview Drive, Strathmere, passed away on Sunday, February 5 at the age of 87.
George Welker writes, "...she had suffered a stroke, a few days before, that left her in a semi-comatose state and she just slept away. Up until the day of that last stroke, she was her usual alert self. She'd even had visitors that day and had laughed and chatted with them over lunch.
"She was a wonderful, loving woman and we all know she's in a better place now, where she can finally walk again and has been reunited with her husband and son among many other departed loved ones.
"Please join us on Wednesday morning for a celebration of her life at Bethany Lutheran Church (617 Morgan Ave) in Palmyra, NJ. The family will be having visitations at 9am and the service will be at 10am with a luncheon to follow at the church."
