Ruth Ann Gorsky

May 27, 1924 – January 13, 2017

 

Ruth Ann Gorsky passed away on Friday, January 13.  She lived a full and amazing life, with Eddie at her side for 71 of her 92 years.

 

She was actively involved at St. Mary’s Cathedral, serving as the assistant wedding coordinator (the stories that she could tell would make for fascinating non-fiction).  An avid reader she enjoyed the camaraderie of her book group.  Additionally, she was an award-winning quilter and enjoyed the daily crossword puzzle.

 

After living across the globe – Lancaster, Phoenix, Connecticut, Egypt and England – she ultimately chose to settle in Portland to be close to her family.  Although small in stature, her enormous heart made the biggest impact on those who knew, met and loved her.

 

She is survived by her husband, Edward Gorsky; her children, Sharon Cochran (Richard) and Gary Gorsky; her six grandchildren, Tiffanie Cochran Ranta (Steve), Christian Cochran (Jennifer), Elizabeth Cochran Gillespie (Ian), Dustin Gorsky, Jonathan Gorsky, and Stephanie Gorsky; and her ten great-grandchildren, Abigail Ranta, Elijah Anderson, Sarah Cochran, Jerrod Ranta, Reese Cochran, Emily Cochran, Jacob Ranta, Ewan Gillespie, Cody Cochran and Emilia Gillespie.

 

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary’s Cathedral – 1739 NW Couch St. –  at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 21, 2017.  Recitation of the rosary will begin at 10:30am.

 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Mary’s Cathedral (1716 NW Davis St. Portland, 97209) or the American Heart Association.
