Ruth Deichman, 76, died at 1am on Friday, September 14, 2012, due to complications from pancreatic cancer.
Ruth has lived on Maui eight years, but has been an islander all her life. Born in Manhattan and raised in Brooklyn (Long Island), Ruth never dreamed of the wonderful life she would one day have in the paradise of Maui - made so as much by her loving and dedicated ohana of friends and family, as by the natural beauty surrounding her home.
Ruth is survived by her daughters - Sara, Amy, and Jodi - her sons-in-law - Kevin and Steve - her grandchildren - Ian, Melissa, Jacob, and Alexa - her grandkitty and two granddogs, and a litany of good friends and family who will miss her greatly.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, September 16, 2012, at Valley Isle Memorial Park in Haiku. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Ruth's name to the American Cancer Society or Hadassah.
