Ruth Law, aged 108, peacefully departed this life on January 18, 2024, in Aurora, CO. Born to Harry E. and Mae Budinger Fuller on June 13, 1915, in DeWitt, Iowa, Ruth was the youngest among her eight siblings. Despite losing her father at the tender age of 5, Ruth cherished fond memories of her upbringing in DeWitt within a large and joyous family. She graduated as the valedictorian of her class from DeWitt High School in 1932.
On October 4, 1943, in Ketchikan, Territory of Alaska, Ruth entered matrimony with Hamilton B. Law while he was in service with the Army during the war. Post-war, the couple eventually established their residence in Denver, CO. Ruth embarked on a long and distinguished career as an executive secretary, contributing many years of service to The Prudential Insurance Company. Later, from 1959 to 1969, Ruth served as the secretary to the District Attorney of the 18th Judicial District, Arapahoe County. In 1970, Ruth assumed the role of secretary to the Speaker of the House at the Colorado State Capitol, a position she held dear.
Ruth and Ham's union endured for 55 years until his passing in 1998. Subsequently, Ruth resided in their shared home for two more decades before relocating to an assisted living apartment at the remarkable age of 102.
Ruth is preceded in death by her husband, parents, and siblings Russell, Ralph, Herbert, Harold, Thomas, Margaret, and Lois. She is survived by sixteen nieces and nephews and numerous great-nieces and nephews with whom she shared enduring and affectionate relationships. Ruth Law leaves behind a legacy of dedication, resilience, and love that will be remembered by those fortunate enough to have known her. May she rest in eternal peace.
