Ruth Rini

September 2, 1950 — July 29, 2021

Ruth Ann Rini the daughter of Harold and Myrtle (South) Buckley was born September 2, 1950, in Ravenna, Ohio and departed this life on July 29, 2021, in Tahlequah, Oklahoma at the age of 70 years, 10 months and 27 days.

Ruth loved life and she loved her family. She enjoyed gardening, watching TV and scanning Facebook. She had moved to California for several years to be with her mother and help take care of her. She had moved back to Tahlequah about a year ago to be around her children and grandchildren again. With her move back to Tahlequah, her son moved back as well and all of her children and grandchildren were back together. Ruth loved her family deeply and this move meant the world to her. She touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her father Harold Buckley and her sister Beverly Jane Lett.

She is survived by a loving family which includes her children Shawna Batson and husband Robert of Tahlequah, Jason Rini and wife Maury of Tahlequah and Shyna Rogers of Tahlequah; her mother Myrtle Buckley of Winnetka, CA; her brother Bruce Buckley of Balboa Park, CA; her grandchildren Robby Batson, Lily Batson, Liam Rogers and Roselyn Rogers; her niece Iisha Scott and her dog whom she loved dearly Tiggie. Several friends and other relatives also survive her.
