She is preceded in death by her husband, Richard W. Bennett, Sr., her parents and two siblings. She is survived by her children, Richard (Valerie) Bennett, Jr., Susan (Thomas) Sefkow, John (Barbara) Bennett, Barry (Mary Ellen) Bennett, nine grandchildren, their spouses and ten great-grand-children. She is also survived by her brother, Cliff Elver, and her sister-in-law, Vivian Evans. A service and celebration of her life will be held later this spring in Montevideo, MN. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hamline University or the Animal Humane Society in Ruthanne's memory are preferred.
