So sorry for the passing of your mom, Ruth. I have enjoyed visiting her with my mom, and enjoying some fun sheepshead games with their group. It brought back memories of soccer at Colbern Park as well! I cannot help but think of her free of these earthly bonds, and after reconnecting with your dad, I am sure that heaven is a bit more lively now with Ruth’s arrival!

To the Huguet Family,
I met Ruth about 4 years ago when visiting my mother (Elaine Elliott) at Woodside. I live in TN and would visit my mother for a few weeks near the end of January & February so we could watch the Super Bowl together. Ruth was always a "stitch" whether having lunch, at Mass or those exceptional Happy Hour days. Ruth was always fun to be around. Sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Tom Elliott.

To the Family of Ruth Huguet,
So sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. She was one of a kind. As a member of the "Birthday Lunch Group", Ruth always had a joke to tell and kept us all in stitches. I will always remember her. I am sure you all will miss her greatly.
With Sympathy, Peg Watermolen.

Please accept my sympathy at the loss of your mom. It's hard to imagine her not telling me the story how she met my dad. It was in the old St. Agnes (basement of the school) church. At the sign of peace she held and kissed the man sitting in front of her. She always said that after Mass my dad told her that she shouldn't be so passionate with strangers. At this point of the story Ruth would laugh and tell me that the stranger that she held and kissed was her father!
I got to know your mom as an adult when I coached Fran at St. Agnes and even better when your dad died. We had some good talks. She missed David so much. I hope that your sorrow can be lessened by the knowledge that they are together again.

I am so sad to learn of Ruth's passing. Ruth lived down the hall from my parents, Noah and Carol, in Manor 3 for a time. They spent a fair amount of time together...and from time to time shared a glass of wine or champagne. After my parents moved to the Woodside Vill, Ruth would sometimes make it part of her daily walk to stop in to visit; and continued to do so even after my mom's death. Her company was always appreciated and enjoyed! She had wonderful stories to share of her life, and we all delighted in hearing her tell them. She had such a twinkle in her eye, like there might be just a wee bit of mischief hiding inside.
I will keep your family in my heart and prayers.

I remember riding my bike out to the homestead on West Mason and picking beans with the Platten clan...of course including Ruth. As adults many years later we occasionally got together to play cards...always fun. I spoke to Ruth two years ago this Christmas when she sang with the Public Service Chorus for an event I attended. One fine lady.

I met Ruth at Woodside Assisted Living. My dad also lived there at that time. Ruth was such a special lady. My dad lived at Woodside for about 2 1/2 years ( he passed away in November of 2018]. My dad was grieving the loss of our mom, who he was married to for 62 years. It was hard to bring a smile to his face, but Ruth often stopped by with a story, or a joke, or a shot of blackberry brandy, and always brought a smile to his face. My sisters, brother, and I also loved visiting with Ruth. She was a fun, fiesty lady. We talked about going back to visit her, but with COVID we didn’t get the chance. Your mom was a very special lady. I’m sure her fun personality and lively spirit will be missed at Woodside.
~ Lori Counihan - November 26, 2020
Ruth and I had many nice visits during her time at Woodside. She was a wonderful story teller, and told of her joys and sorrows in life. Her love of puzzles showed in her devotion to them. She had a feisty side to her that I enjoyed. I’m so sorry for your families loss. May she Rest In Peace in God’s loving arms.
~ Helene Burmeister - November 25, 2020
To Ruth's family, I am sorry for your loss. I got to know Ruth while working at Woodside Manor as a Receptionist. Ruth was such a fun person and so cheerful. Sending my sympathies to you all. May GOD provide you all with the comfort and strength to guide you through your difficult days.

RIP Aunt Ruth! You will be missed!
~ Barbara Menne - November 24, 2020
My most cherished memory of Aunt Ruth is from 93/94. It had been a blustery day in which I had spent the majority of arguing with God. I returned home to a package and to my great surprise, it was a beautiful wall crucifix with my Risen Lord holding out his open arms to me. It was as if Jesus was saying “It’s okay, just hold onto me and it will be alright.” Unbeknown to me, God would place different people on Ruth's heart and she would pray. Over time, when prompted, she would select a specific crucifix for a specific person and without fanfare spread God's love with these beautiful gifts. I happened to be one blessed with her obedience. I don't know how many of us are out there but my mother told me each was received with profound gratitude.
It was such an intense spiritual experience: From that day until this, whenever I struggle with God's will my mind goes back to “it’s okay, just hold onto me and it will be alright” and it always is.
Though I am sorry for our loss I am so happy for all she has gained. In my mind’s eye I see them dancing, together again, as Dave sings softly in her ear.
To my cousins, thank you for sharing your mother with me. With generosity of spirit she allowed me to glean from her experience. I treasured her wisdom and insight, both edifying and clarifying. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
With much love.

She was my favorite aunt. We will all miss her greatly, but her spirit remains with us. Forever.

My prayers are with all of Ruth's family...I met Ruth at Woodside and she became a very interesting part of the "Sheepshead" group...thanks for all your jokes, the friendship, and eagerness to help get the room back into shape after each session.
~ Bob Charles - November 22, 2020
Ruth was one of a kind. She was a wonderful, loving, and protective mother. She was the best cook and baker! I learned so much from her and always loved the family gatherings. She always made everyone so welcome. I hope you find comfort knowing that she will be reunited with Dave. My sincere sympathies, and may you all find comfort in holding her memories in your hearts and minds.
~ Linda Kozlowski - November 22, 2020
I could always count on an interesting, spirited conversation when I visited Ruth! I now picture Ruth asking the Lord some tough questions!
Ruth was one of our faithful St. Agnes “Ministers of Praise” and will be especially remembered in the next ministry letter. May God bless you all.
With a prayer,

Sadly my Aunt Ruth was the last of “The Platten Girls”,
all of whom, for generations to come, left the world a better place.
She was interested and interesting, enthusiastic, hardworking,
and supportive to the end of her life.
A great lover of kids and music who, during the holidays
would welcome our bunch and tolerate the cacophony of
more than ten kids and two pianos. Those poor pianos.
It was always a happy welcome, there were always Christmas
tree comparisons, (bigger, better, tinsel or not?), total chaos,
lots of food and fun.
My aunt consistently honored and was joyfully present for
She truly was an unsung hero and stayed involved
in the background, encouraging and supporting my mom
during the Silver Alert process, a very challenging time.
We are forever grateful.
“The Platten Girls” are together again.

I remember the first time I met Ruth. What a lady. Str0ng, funny, upfront. A straight shooter. Just like me! I liked her so much. The Jokes she told! What a hoot ! She will be missed!
~ Sue Knaus - November 21, 2020
Norma and I offer our deepest condolences for the loss of this wonderful soul.
We grew up near Ruth’s family on Mason Street and have many fond memories of Ruth, her parents and the Trading Post. My father was an only child and although she was my father’s cousin she was more like a sibling and the little sister he never had.
Ruth was my Godmother and has always held a special place in my heart going back to my first communion when amidst all of the assorted religious gifts I received, Ruth gave me a baseball bat and to this day I still have the “rooster” Christmas stocking she gave me as a child.
Ruth was a joy to be around and there was a smile on every face when she walked into a room. She was always welcomed at any of our family gatherings and certainly livened up the festivities. She will be sorely missed and the world is a sadder place today for her loss.
~ Pat Riley - November 21, 2020
I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Huguet. I will never forget a few memories that I can laugh about many years later. Like the time she asked me to drive Dani and the host family from France to Chicago for a few days away. We drove all the way to Chicago and back to Green Bay. When we returned to Green Bay, we got to the corner of Beimeret Street and Weisner just a few houses from the house when she got distraught that I didn't make a complete stop at a stop sign. You would have thought I just made a deal with the devil. For the next few months, I never heard the end of it. How was I going to take care of her daughter and keep her safe? I joke, but the truth is I've only been stopped for not making a complete stop at a stop sign just a handful of times. Lol.
I know the Huguet children will miss her as they have missed their dad for many years.
My prayers, thoughts, and well wishes are with the family as they grieve their mother's loss. -James Vertz
