She will be reunited with her first husband Frederick (Fritz) Matuszeski, her son Wayne Matuszeski and her second husband Oscar Schwartz.

Ruth was born August 11, 1928, the daughter Philip and Elsie (nee Kanzenbach) Luck, in the town of Trenton Wi.  Ruth was united in marriage to Fritz Matuszecki until his death in 1983.  Ruth remarried June 7th, 1986 to Oscar Schwartz.  Ruth was a faithful member of St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church in Juneau, WI.  She worked at Wagner Products where she retired after 30 years of service. Her favorite pastime was coffee clutching with her dear friends and relatives. She enjoyed bowling with her husband and lady friends and also enjoyed an occasional beer and popcorn. ‘Captain and coke’ was enjoyed on her Saturday nights out with friends and family. Her greatest joy was caring and loving her granddaughters Tory and Shawna.
