Ruth E. Ammeter, beloved mother and grandmother, 82, passed away June 21, 2016. Survived by her six children, Pam Pate, Lynn (Gary) Barbari, Kevin (Cheryl) Ammeter, Duane (Tracy) Ammeter, Mark (Shane) Ammeter, Matt (Tina) Ammeter; sister, Frieda Shaw; 14 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by parents, Emil and Frieda Gaulke; brother, Edgar Gaulke; sister, Katherine Johnson; infant daughter, Sherri Lee Ammeter; and the father of her six children, John C. Ammeter. Ruth was born Oct. 8, 1933, in Ludell, Kan., to Emil and Frieda Gaulke. Her family moved to Nebraska and Ruth graduated from Holdrege High School. She moved to Colorado Springs where she met the father of her six children, John C. Ammeter. They moved to Pueblo to begin their family together. Her working career included waitressing at various Pueblo restaurants and working at Joslins in the Pueblo Mall for 10 plus years. The highlight of her career was being a loving and caring mother. She enjoyed being with her family as much as she could. While living in the nursing home, she enjoyed visits from family and spending holidays with family members. Her savior, Jesus Christ, and the faith she had in her heart saw her through many, many difficulties in her life. Through the end she held onto her faith until Jesus took her hand and brought her into heaven. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Graveside service will take place at later date. We would like to thank the nurses and caregivers at the Sangre de Cristo Hospice House for the excellent care and love shown to our mother. We believe God has blessed this house with angels to care for the many that come through. Memorials may be made to Sangre de Cristo Hospice, 1207 Pueblo Blvd. Way, Pueblo, CO 81005.
