Ruth Ellen Grill, 90, died peacefully on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, at Woodmont Health Campus in Boonville, Indiana. She was born June 30, 1929, in Newtonville, Indiana, to the late Geneva and George Byrne.
Ruth attended Chrisney High School and graduated with the class of 1948 and retired from Windsor Plastics (Guardian Automotive) in 1991 as a parts inspector.
