Ruth Ann Sibert, of Perry Twp., her earthly journey now completed, entered serenely into eternity early Thursday morning, April 19, 2018. Born in Massillon June 26, 1937, a daughter to the late Raymond and Irene (Rolls) Fogle, Ruthie graduated from Washington High School with the Class of 1955. Following high school she worked briefly at the former Griscom-Russell Company and later, after her boys had reached school-age, with Perry Local Schools. A devoted wife and life partner; a loving and supportive mom, grandma, great-grandma and sister as well as a faithful and active member of Central Presbyterian Church in Massillon, Ruthie centered her life around her family, her faith community and a tightly-knit and spirited group of girlfriends who met in high school and have remained together since then. These are the roles for which she was known.
Predeceased by her parents and a brother, Dennis Fogle; Ruthie is survived by her husband and best friend of 60 years, James E. Sibert; her sons, Steven J. (Brenda) Sibert, of Bradenton, Florida and Greg (Terry) Sibert, of Perry Twp.; her grandchildren, Zachary (Melissa) Sibert, Tyler Sibert, Tracy Sutton and Christina Brighenti and great-grandsons, Joe, Donny and Mikey Sutton. Also surviving are her sister, Karen (Tom) Sibert and brothers, Gary (Susan) Fogle and Timothy (Dru) Fogle; sister-in-law, Mrs. Connie Fogle; special nephews, Kevin (Ricka) Sibert and daughter, Peyton and Mark (Ida) Sibert and their daughter, Alexa; several more dear nieces and nephews and her treasured friends, Carolyn, Ruthie, Nancy, Verna, Linda and Wanda. These are who she loved.
