Ruth Elizabeth Kueffer
Ruth Elizabeth Kueffer lived a life of faith and adventure. As a child, she was moved all over the Northwest, as her father worked for the Forest Service.
She earned a bachelor's degree in teaching and later married Paul. They then lived in Arizona while Paul finished his career with the Forest Service.
Being involved in a local church, they decided to join an organization that sent them out as missionaries. They served and shared God's love in New York, Canada, Alaska and a few other northern areas — having wonderful and difficult adventures. In 1989 they retired to Prineville and continued that sharing of God's love in many ways throughout this community.
Elizabeth was preceded to Heaven by her parents, her brothers, and her husband. She is survived by her niece, Heather Booth, Heather's husband, and their three children who reside in California.
