Obituary: March 6, 2008, Lodi News Sentinel. Ruth Jeanette Schoephoerster of Stockton, CA, age 89, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, March 6, 2008. She will be remembered for her unwavering Christian faith and strong love of family.
She was born to Adolph and Ruby (Crandall) Christianson on March 6, 1919 in Wayzata, Minnetonka Township, Mn. Received into God's family by baptism on October 8, 1922, she remained an active member of the Lutheran Church until her death.
On July 25, 1937 she was united in holy matrimony to Lloyd Frederick Schoephoerster in Porter, Mn. The Lord bless their union with four children: David Lee, Constance Ann, Pamela Jean, and Judith Joan. In 1944 the young family moved to California where Lloyd was employed as a mechanic for heavy machinery in the war effort.
Ruth enjoyed her role as a homemaker and was known by family and friends as a wonderful cook and hostess. She loved spending time with her children, grandchidren, and great-grandchildren.
As a young woman she taught Sunday School and sang in the church choir. Her love of liturgical music was a constant in her life. Her hobbies included Bible study, needlework, and gardening. She enjoyed traveling and made 3 trips to the Holy Land, which were highlights of her life.
After Lloyd's death on May 25, 1993, as she became less active and as her health declined, she moved to Lodi to be closer to her family. She had been a resident at O'Connor Woods for the last four years.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd, 6 siblings and her great-grandson, Jeremy Elliot.
She is survived by her four children, twelve grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 11th at 2:30 p.m. at the O'Conner Woods Chapel in Stockton with Pastor Steven Karp of St. Stephen Lutheran Church officiating.
Rollin Relm, Pastor Emeritus will deliver the eulogy.

Ruth married Lloyd Frederick SCHOEPHOERSTER. Lloyd was born on January 31, 1912 in Minnesota, died on May 25, 1993 in (SANMATEO)CA at age 81, and was buried in May 1993.
