On Tuesday, November 20, 2018, our Lord Jesus Christ, sent his angels to take my loving wife, Ruth Alvarez, into heaven. She passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family.

Ruth was born on March 18, 1950, to Elias and Maria Rubio in Juarez, Mexico. While visiting her relatives, she met the love of her life, Jesse Alvarez, in 1976. That same year, after dating three months, they married. This union was blessed with two sons, Jesus and Hector.

Ruth was a hard-working individual. She worked for Glover Packing Company and Levi Strauss until they both closed. Ruth worked many years at Mission Arch Nursing Home until she was diagnosed with cancer. She fought a good fight from 2008, and beat it, but in 2017 the cancer returned. No matter how much she fought, she was unable to overcome. The disease won and took her at an early age of 68.

An adoring wife, mother, and Grandmother, Ruth lived her life to the fullest, especially tending to her grandsons. Throughout her employment, she met lots of individuals who became friends for life. She was a person who would go out of her way to help anyway she could.

During family gatherings she would cook excellent meals. Everyone enjoyed her cooking, especially her Chile Con Carne, and Chile Beans. During Christmas, she would make her fabulous Tamales and Bescochitos that everyone loved.
