Obituary for Ruth Louise Brewster

Ruth Louise Brewster, 86, of Medford, Oregon passed away Monday afternoon, January 14, 2019.
She was born on March 24, 1932 to Neal Ross Yocom and Adelma Mae Knowles Adams. Ruth was raised by her great uncle and aunt, John and Ophelia Adams and moved at a young age from Boulder, Colorado to Pasadena, California. At four, her lifelong love of music began when she learned to play the piano. She graduated from Pasadena High School in 1947 and later met Bill, her husband of 65 years, at Pasadena College and the two were soon married on June 6, 1952. She was the loving mother of three boys who remember her as a caring, dependable and steadfast woman. She loved Jesus, flowers, music and genealogy.
Ruth’s life was defined by her devotion to family and her exuberant love for music. She began sharing this passion with others through teaching music in the Central Point School District. She also taught lower elementary, piano classes in her home, as well as Sunday School at Medford Friends Church. To better serve the children she educated, she completed her Masters in Teaching around 1967 at then Southern Oregon College.
Ruth, with her husband, enjoyed gospel music as well as traveling.
She attended and was active at Medford Friends Church, where she played the piano and keyboard for many years. She will be remembered for her love of the Lord, her spirited worship, her steadfast love, her determination and her loyalty to family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband, William “Bill” Brewster. She is survived by her three sons, Michael Kent Brewster, Rick Brewster (Karen) and Dave Brewster (Rhonda); her grandchildren, Angie Shackelton, Levi Shackleton, Matthew Stone, Justin Kniffen, Shanae Brewster, Chris Kniffen, Emily Brewster, Micah Brewster, Hannah Pech, Jeffrey Brewster; as well as numerous great-grandchildren.
A memorial service wil be held Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at Medford Friends Church. In lieu of flowers the family requests that monetary gifts be given to Medford Friends Church for camp and college scholarships.
