Ruth Kathryn (Burnside) Slusher, age 76, of Bellefontaine, Ohio passed away at 12:27 A.M. January 31, 2019 at home surrounded by her family.

She was born in Tipp City, Ohio July 29, 1942, to the late Wilbur Burnside and Kathryn (Gorman) Burnside. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Richard Burnside.

Ruth retired from Northern Floral following many years of service. She later worked part-time at Levy Entertainment until receiving her breast cancer diagnosis in 2008. Ruth loved the Lord, her church family, and most especially spending time with her children and grandchildren. She fought a hard battle for eleven years with breast cancer and will be greatly missed by everyone.

The family will receive friends from 12 to 2 P.M. February 4, 2019 at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Bellefontaine, where Pastor Keith Matthews will officiate the funeral service at 2:00 P.M.
