Obituary of Ruth A. Beatty

Ruth Adele Beatty, 92, of Bethlehem, PA, formerly of Morristown, NJ, passed away on December 31, 2020. Born in NY, NY, Ruth lived in Morristown, NJ, Whippany, NJ, and finally Bethlehem, PA where she resided for the past four years. Ruth graduated from Bayley High School in 1946. Before her retirement in 1993, Ruth worked as a Secretary for Darrow + Hensley Accountants for 20 years and then continued her professional career at Kemper Insurance where she stayed for another 20 years. Ruth was a parishioner of St. Virgil’s Church in Morris Plains and Our Lady of Mercy in Whippany. She was a volunteer at Morristown Medical Center's Bargain Box. A travel enthusiast, Ruth always had a bag packed ready to embark with her close friends, the Grimshaws, on any adventure. Ruth worked full time while still managing to get a meal on the table everyday. She was an avid reader, queen of the crossword puzzle, and loved a dimly lit bar while enjoying laughter with friends and a bourbon Manhattan! Ruth is survived by her devoted children, Sharon Jensen (Eric) of Bellingham, WA, Glenn Beatty (Maria) of NY, NY, and Marty Beatty (Jan) of Bethlehem, PA. She is also survived by her adoring grandchildren, Jacob Jensen (Andrea), Elliot Jensen, Lewis Jensen, Amanda Beatty (partner, Chris Lopes), Laura Beatty (partner, Perry England), Daniele Loprieno and Katherine Dawson, 5 cherished great-grandchildren, beloved sister, Mary Ann DeGraw, and 7 loving nieces and nephews.
