Ruth R. Erbeck
Ruth R. Erbeck, 88, De Pere, died Sunday, Oct. 13, at the age of 88. A resident of De Pere for more than 60 years, she leaves a legacy of contributions to the community that continue to enrich the lives of many.
Ruth's efforts in the 1955 get-out-the-vote campaign were key to gaining national recognition for De Pere as the "Votingest City in the U.S.," with a 99.9 percent voter turnout that year. She was instrumental in establishing the "Celebrate De Pere Centennial," which has become an annual Memorial Day "Celebrate De Pere" tradition. A founder of the White Pillars Museum, Ruth was also the driving force behind creating the De Pere Quilt, a centerpiece of the museum celebrating the nation's bicentennial. She played an active role in marshaling support for constructing Voyager Park on the Fox River and in bringing the first Senior Center to De Pere. During her tenure as president of the De Pere Women's Club, 1968-70, she spearheaded the city-wide Bridge Marathon, still being sponsored by the club as a popular fund-raiser, and led the club's effort to purchase and plant the trees that line South Broadway. She and her husband Harry were also long-standing members of the Heritage Hill volunteer group, delivered meals for the Meals on Wheels program, and served the Commission on Aging in evaluating meal sites for the elderly in Brown County.
While her husband Harry served as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne during World War II, Ruth served on the homefront rolling bandages for the Red Cross and was active in the community as a Girl Scout leader, a core member of the De Pere Presbyterian Church, a War Bond spokesperson and an involved parent at Irwin Elementary School. She remained supportive of the De Pere Public School System beyond her children's school years there, reflecting her respect for quality education and her own lifelong love of learning.
Born March 25, 1914, in Chetek, Wis., Ruth was the daughter of George and Sarah Rathbun. Following her graduation from Harlem High School in Rockford, Ill., she moved to Superior, Wis., to join her sister Margaret in operating a sandwich shop. She met Harry Erbeck in Superior; they married in 1935 and moved to De Pere in 1941. Harry died in 1998.
Ruth is survived by her five children, Douglas (Faye), Carol Massar, Gaela (Tom) Jackson, James (Kathleen) and Eric; 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; many close nieces and nephews; and friends young and old, near and far, who kept contact with her until the end. Her children hope her legacy of contributions will continue to serve as examples of caring involvement to the many whose lives she touched. Visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the First United Presbyterian Church of De Pere, 605 N. Webster Ave. The funeral service is at 7 p.m. at the church, immediately following visitation.
Burial will be at Greenwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Salvation Army in Ruth's name. Cotter Funeral Home, De Pere, is assisting the family.
