Ruth Doreck made an incredible gift to Providence House to be distributed from her estate for years to come.
When considering what a life well lived means, Ruth Doreck will come to the minds of her family and friends and to all of us here at the Providence House. Ruth was a lifelong passionate actor, philanthropist, member of First Presbyterian Church, Shakespeare fan and an avid player of Mahjong, but that’s not what people in our community will remember the most about her. Those who knew her and miss her will remember the way she made us all feel. What a legacy to leave behind, to love so big that it radiates upon and through those who you share life with. Shakespeare wrote, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” We believe Ruth was born great and spent her life thrusting greatness upon all of us and we will honor her by trying to do the same for others.
On March 27, 2020, Providence House lost longtime donor and friend Ruth Doreck to COVID-19.
Give a gift that lasts a lifetime.
