My grandma Ruth was the sweetest, kindest woman you would ever want to meet. She was very family oriented. She loved to bake and cook. She would always bake bread and buns on Saturday mornings. If the grandkids where there she would make special cinnamon rolls or sticky buns. When staying over I would be awaken by the sound of her kneading the bread in the bowl and punching it down. Or the smell of the bread baking in the oven. She also would make home made bread and butter pickles that I adored. She knew how much I loved them so would usually send a jar home for me and my brothers to eat. I have such fond memories of time spent there with her. The sound of a Morning Dove always reminds me of her, for I would hear them in the mornings cooing as I woke. She loved to sing, you could hear her singing to songs of the time on the radio. I remember when she was going to go up town to go shopping she would say to me, I have to go get my Sunday go to meeting clothes on so I can go shopping. I miss her so much. She loved all of her children and grandchildren. She died shortly after her 86th birthday and was buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Saint James, Watonwan County, Minnesota, USA

1907 - 1993 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Ruth's lifetime

In 1907, in the year that Ruth Hildegard (Mossengren) Wolner was born, in October, over a 3 week period, the New York stock exchange fell almost 50% from the previous year's high mark. Public panic ensued and there were runs on banks since the U.S. was in the middle of a recession. J.P. Morgan offered his own fortune to back the banks and he was followed by other financiers. This temporarily shored up the banking system, stopping the immediate panic. All of this led to the creation of the Federal Reserve.

In 1926, Ruth was 19 years old when on November 15th, NBC was founded. It was the U.S.'s first major broadcast network. Ownership of the network was split between RCA (a majority partner at 50%), its founding corporate parent General Electric (which owned 30%), and Westinghouse (which owned the remaining 20%).

In 1940, she was 33 years old when on November 5th, President Franklin Roosevelt was elected to a third term, defeating Wendell Willkie of Indiana (a corporate lawyer). Roosevelt running for a third term was controversial. But the U.S. was emerging from the Great Recession and he promised that he would not involve the country in any foreign war (which of course changed when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor). Roosevelt defeated Willkie in the popular vote by 54.7 to 44.8% and in the Electoral College 449 to 82.

In 1958, she was 51 years old when on January 1st, the European Economic Community (Common Market) came into operation. The first members were France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. The Common Market was formed as a way to strengthen members' economies and deter wars in Europe.

In 1993, in the year of Ruth Hildegard (Mossengren) Wolner's passing, on January 20th, William J. Clinton became the 42nd President of the United States. He beat incumbent George H.W. Bush who was seeking his second term. Clinton won 43.01% of the popular vote to Bush's 37.45%. An independent candidate, Ross Perot, won 18.91% - the most votes for an independent candidate since Teddy Roosevelt's run for President in 1912.
