Ruth Greenberg, 91


COVENTRY, R.I. – Ruth Greenberg passed away peacefully at home on March 24. Born in the Bronx, New York, on April 21, she was the beloved daughter of Gertrude and Barney Maldavir as well as the older sister of her predeceased brothers Gerald and Melvyn.  Ruth, an excellent student, went to Pembroke College and had plans to become an attorney. This dream took a detour and instead she married the love of her life Isadore (Archie) and raised a family. They had many wonderful years together traveling, socializing constantly with friends and family, and living life to the fullest.

Ruth was a devoted mother to Paul Greenberg (Jane Soares) and Cheryl Goldberg (Neal) and a cherished grandma to Jennifer (Matt), Melissa, Alyssa (Jon), Evan (Jess), and Alex. She is also the loving great-grandma of Isaiah, Anya, Corbin, Colby, Mason, Ilana and Noah. 

Ruth was one to try most anything once (including roller coasters), was the consummate Jewish mother, a yummy cook and gracious hostess, did beautiful needlework and knitting, had a great eye for interior design and fashion, a voracious reader and did not let any Sudoku or crossword puzzle stump her! Her advice was often spot-on, and she appreciated good conversation about any topic. We will all remember her with love.
