Ruth Pellman, co-founder of Pellman Foods, dies
Ruth A. Pellman, 81, died Jan. 6 at Fairmount Homes, Ephrata, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Ruth was married for 61 years to William Pellman, New Holland. She was the daughter of the late Lloyd and Elizabeth (Groff) Huber.
After graduating from Upper Leacock High School, she worked at MCC where she met Bill. They were married and raised 3 sons.
She was a member of Hinkletown Mennonite Church where she taught children’s Sunday School classes for many years. More recently, she and Bill attended and are members of Blossom Hill Mennonite Church.
Ruthie loved music and vacationing in Camden, Maine and Stone Harbor, New Jersey. She made a delicious cheesecake. In 1973, Bill suggested she share it with others. Together, they founded Pellman Foods Inc.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by three sons: John D. of New Holland, Michael L. married to Kim Hess Pellman, Bird-in-Hand, and Scott P. of New Holland. She has a grandson: Matt Pellman, Philadelphia; and a granddaughter: Brooke Pellman Herr, married to Mike Herr, Lancaster; and one great-grandson: Westin Michael Herr. Two sisters also survive: Mary married to J. Earl Shearer, Stevens, and Lois, wife of Carl Wolgemuth, of Howard, Pa.
The Pellman Family would like to thank the staff at Fairmount Homes for their love and support over the last 4 1/2 years.
A Memorial Service will be held Friday, Feb. 1 at 4 p.m. at Blossom Hill Mennonite Church, 333 Delp Road, Lancaster. Following the service, there will be an informal time to greet the family with food and fellowship. A private traditional burial will be in Stumptown Mennonite Cemetery.
