January 29, 1927 - September 9, 2020
DEERFIELD - Ruth Marie (Stewlow) Gubbe, age 93, of Deerfield, MI, formerly of Britton, died September 9, 2020 at Sunset Village in Sylvania, Ohio. Ruth was born January 29, 1927 to Henry and Lena (Korth) Stewlow in Blissfield Township. Ruth attended the Wilcox School and as a young adult worked in factories, including the former Faraday in Tecumseh. On August 29, 1953, she married Carl Gubbe at Immanuel Lutheran Church, where she was a life-long member, teaching Sunday school and participating in women’s bible study groups for many years. She also served as the first president of Immanuel’s women’s board and as a congregational liaison to the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan. While raising her three children, who were born in one year with the twins’ arrival 364 days after a daughter, Ruth was actively involved in their activities. Ruth also took cake decorating and candy making classes. For many years, family and friends were the recipients of her beautifully decorated cakes for special occasions and delicious chocolates at Christmas and Easter. During retirement, Ruth and Carl spent 23 years in Leesburg, FL, as “snowbirds” and Ruth continued to do so for 3 years after she was widowed. They enjoyed socializing with a wide circle of friends and playing golf; Ruth was assured it would be noted in her obituary that she once got a hole in one! Ruth is survived by her daughters Linda Gubbe of Toledo and Theresa Becktell of Ypsilanti, grandson Jason (Mary) Becktell of Ypsilanti, sister Jeanette Gaydosh of Green Valley, AZ and many nieces, nephews and greats. She was preceded in death by her husband Carl and son Thomas Gubbe, grandson Paul Becktell, son-in-law John Becktell and brothers Donald, Harold and Jaye Stewlow.
