Ruth Eleanor Yoder, 82, of Intercourse, died Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at her home after a 5 month illness.
Born in Martindale, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Alta (Shirk) Good.
The eldest of eight children, Ruth was often in charge of her siblings when her mother and father would do church visits. Family was very important to her and she enjoyed family reunions and researching genealogy. After graduating from college with a degree in Elementary Education, she taught school in Michigan and then in Indiana. While in Indiana she met her husband, Jim, to whom she was married for 51 years. They moved to Pennsylvania in 1969 to be closer to family. She enjoyed reading and writing poems and articles and journaled regularly. Several of her articles have been published.
Surviving in addition to her husband is a son, Gordon (Brenda) Yoder; 2 grandchildren, Harrison and Violet Yoder; and 7 siblings, Donald (Linda) Good, Ken (Mildred) Good, Joyce McFadden, Carol (John) Groff, Marlin (Jane) Good, Michael (Karen) Good, and Leonard (Jean) Good.

My name is Deb Sensenig and I worked for forty years at the fudge shop in Kitchen Kettle Village. I would always look forward to talking to Ruth when she would walk to the village. I have to share that she was so happy and proud to be a Grandma and always showed me her latest pictures of her grandchildren. I was very sad to see that she had passed away. I am very sorry for your loss. She was a friendly and very charming lady. Your family is in my prayers
