Name TypeDateDescription
Married Namecirca 1950As of circa 1950,her married name was Pulvermacher.
  • Ruth Louise Lockman was born in 1928.
  • She was the daughter of George Lockman and Evalina Poquette.
  • Ruth Louise Lockman died on 4 October 2015 Ruth Louise (Lockman) Pulvermacher age 87, died peacefully on October 4, 2015 at Greenway Manor Nursing Home after a long journey with Alzheimer’s disease. Ruth was born in 1928 in the same house in which she raised her family on a farm she cherished. She was raised by her father, George Lockman, and her grandmother Margaret Goeltz. Ruth’s mother, Evalina Poquette, died from complications related to mom’s childbirth so she never met her mom. By most standards mom’s childhood was difficult. Her grandmother died when she was only eight. The weight of the Depression in the 30s–and beyond–was heavy. She and her sister Mary Margaret were extremely close sisters. Along with their brother Richard, they all worked hard on the farm every day. She loved to learn and walked 2-3 miles to and from school each day.

    So, while she had every reason to be bitter about a tough life growing up, she saw nothing but goodness and felt nothing but joy with all the blessings that came her way. Optimism is described as a glass always half-full; her glass overflowed constantly. She loved her work as the pastry chef at The Spring Green Restaurant; a job she cherished for 25 years. She provided tender care and loving support to others working in the home health care industry for a number of years. At her last job, she couldn’t believe they paid her to be a hospitality greeter at The House on the Rock meeting people and telling them stories about the area she so dearly loved. While working full-time away from the farm she also worked full-time on the farm—growing vegetables, quilting, milking cows, baking, tossing hay bales, sewing, tending flower gardens, playing cards and enjoying time with grandchildren. The spring in her step was strong and she jumped into her work with boundless enthusiasm. Work was never a burden; she embraced her work with the same joy she embraced her life.

    Ruth is survived by many who loved her deeply and learned from her eternally optimistic spirit. Harold, her husband of 65 years, was her rock of support during these trying years while Ruth battled Alzheimer’s. He was literally there for her every day. She leaves behind her four children, Carl (Darcy) Pulvermacher, Nancy (Keith) Maxwell, Sue (Allen) Pulvermacher-Alt, and Julie (Rob) Bauer—who will do their best to carry on her positive attitude. Her grandchildren, Kendra (Jason) Schluter, Tod, Beau, and Cody (Lori) Pulvermacher, Kyle (Jen), Nathan (Julie), and Kallan (KayDee) Maxwell, Justin and Maggie Alt, Lucas and Jillian Bauer, will fondly remember seeing grandma in purple; contributing to and checking out her snowman collection; and reaching into a cookie jar of homemade chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies. While not related by bloodline she is also survived by members of the Swenson family who have been family-like farm neighbors for many generations. She is survived by 7 great-grandchildren: Andrew and Tyler Maxwell, Tessa and Macie Schluter, McKenzie and Logan Maxwell, and Connie Pulvermacher; her sister- and brother-in-law Mary Jane and Simon Dischler, with whom they celebrated one anothers’ anniversaries for 65 years; and many other family members and friends. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, her in laws, and her siblings. As you read this Ruth is busily and happily catching up with those she loved who went to heaven before her.

    Friends and family are invited to attend A Mass of Christian Burial for Ruth on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at St. John’s Catholic Church in Spring Green. Fr. Mike Resop will officiate with burial in the church cemetery. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, at St. John’s Catholic Church from 4:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M. and again on Thursday from 10:00 A.M. until the time of Mass at 11:00 A.M. The family is incredibly thankful to the caring staff at the Terrace Assisted Living facility and Greenway Manor nursing home. They helped mom preserve her sense of humor and dignity to the very end. Special thanks to Rosie Layton for her care over the years, along with Fr. Mike and Sister Lynne Marie. Memorials may be made to the Henry Vilas Zoo, and the Alzheimer’s Association.

    The Richardson-Stafford Funeral Home in Spring Green is assisting the family with the arrangements.
