Ruth Arlene Kwist

Ruth Arlene Kwist, age 80, of Jackson, passed away Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Ruth was born in Chicago, IL on May 23, 1940, the daughter of Erma Haspodka  and Otto Haspodka.

Ruth was a loving mother to her two daughters and grandmother to her four grandchildren. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends whether it be going out to eat, shopping, to the movies or just relaxing and chatting. If you knew Ruth then you most likely remember her blue eyes and the bow in her hair was her trademark. She was active in her church group and played dominoes and bingo several times a week with her friends. Ruth was the county Conservator and retired after 22 years of working for Amador County. 

We would like to thank her wonderful nurses and the staff at Kit Carson for always being there for our mom and always making her feel so special. We would also like to thank the staff at Sutter Amador Hospital for being so caring with our mom. Last but not least is a big thank you to Common Ground for helping our mom over the years, you have been so wonderful. 

Ruth is survived by her daughters Alicia Bennett & Janine Kwist; grandchildren Mason Murdock & Ciara Bennett, all from Ione. 

She was preceded in death by her parents Erma & Otto Haspodka from Jackson, and her grandchildren Hunter Bennett & Tommy Bennett from Ione.

A celebration Of Life will be planned for later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Common Ground Senior Services at 80 Ridge Road, Suite A, Sutter Creek,  CA 95685. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting and signing the guest book.
