On Tuesday, November 27, 2012, Ruth Oemcke took flight from her earthly home in West Suffield to her eternal heavenly home where her predeceased husband Ludwig Phillip Oemcke of 43 years; her son Franklin Roy Oemcke; and all her predeceased family and friends, were waiting with outstretched arms to welcome her. Her "journey" was long, she enjoyed the comfort and loving, nurturing care of her home she shared for the last ten years with her daughter Ruth Marie DeBisschop and great grandson, Clayton Broc Gendron…But, the angels said, "Come Ruth, it is time to go now." Her flight was a beautiful lifting of spirit on the wings of her ever watchful angels into the open arms of her ever trusted Heavenly Father. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, nurturing grandmother, loyal friend, and always had an outstretched arm to the needy. It was a blessing to have such peace and grace through all her years. Born in Colyer, PA on September 15, 1917, daughter of the late Adam Franklin and Mary Jane (Henninger) Smith, she was raised in Pennsylvania, and had lived in Middlebury and Beacon Falls for the greater part of her life. Ruth was a founding member of the Whitney Avenue Church of Christ in Hamden. She leaves a son, Kenneth Phillip Oemcke and his wife Deborah of Naugatuck and Farmington, ME; two daughters, Mary Jane Lambrides and her husband The Rev. Dr. Daniel H. Lambrides of St. Paul, MN, and Ruth DeBisschop of West Suffield; a daughter-in-law, Barbara Oemcke of Collinsville; a sister, Nellie Beatty and her husband Kenneth of Naugatuck; 12 grandchildren; 24 great grandchildren; and one great-great grandson. Besides her husband and her son, she was predeceased by three brothers; and three sisters. Her family will receive friends on Sunday, December 9, 12 Noon- 1 p.m., followed by a memorial service at 1 p.m., at the Nicholson & Carmon Funeral Home, 443 East St. North, Suffield. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Whitney Avenue Church of Christ Memorial Handicap Ramp Fund, 2141 Whitney Ave., North Haven, CT 06473.
