Ruth Decker, 1914-2010

Ruth Decker was born in Sweden on Nov. 16, 1914, and passed away in Sacramento on March 6, 2010, with friends by her side.


When she was just 7, her family immigrated to the United States, stopping first at Ellis Island.


She met the love of her life, Harold Decker, in Oakland where her family had settled. They formerly owned the Richmond Yacht Harbor. They later sold it and bought an orchard in Scotts Valley where they planted pears.


She was an avid sailor, winning many trophies and was an avid tennis player. She enjoyed her house on the lake, and enjoyed crappie fishing as well as swimming in the lake up until she was 88 years old.


Ruth had a certain gusto for life and will be sadly missed.


She is survived by many friends and family and a son, Tom. She was preceded by her husband Hal and her six siblings.


In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a favorite charity. A celebration of Ruth’s life will be held at a later date.
