Rueth, Bernard P. "Bun" (17 MAR 1925 – 5 OCT 2015)

Bernard P. "Bun" Rueth, 90, Loyal, passed away on Monday, Oct. 5, 2015, at Atrium Post Acute Care in Marshfield. Funeral Services were held at 11 a.m., on Friday, Oct. 9, at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Loyal. Rev. Steve Brice officiated. Burial followed in St. Anthony Catholic Cemetery. Pallbearers were Michelle Abel, Josh Abel, Zakkery Trudeau, Gene Hinker, Jack Rueth and Tom Rueth.

Bernard Patrick Rueth was born on March 17, 1925, in Loyal, the son of Leo and Agnes (nee Suda) Rueth. He was raised on the family farm and received his education at St. Anthony Catholic School, Loyal. He married Marjorie E. Bauer on Nov. 29, 1945, at St. Anthony Catholic Church. Bun was a truck driver the majority of his life. If you knew Bun, you would have heard at least one "trucking story." He enjoyed fishing and tending to his garden, and was also one of the best makers of horse radish. When Bun lived with his son and daughter-in-law, his greatest joy was spending time with his great-grandchildren, Harper and Hayden. He especially enjoyed playing his harmonica to them.

He is survived by his children, Jim (Sharon) Rueth, Pittsville, and Marilee (Gary) Trudeau, West Salem; two grandchildren, Michelle (Josh) Abel, Pittsville, and Zakkery Trudeau, Madison; two great-grandchildren, Harper Rueth Abel and Hayden Louis Abel; one sister, Jayne Kolbeck, Marshfield; one brother, Herbert "Chub" (Kathleen "Kap") Rueth, Parma, Idaho; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marjorie, on June 20, 2000; his parents; two brothers, Patrick and Eddie Rueth, and twin brothers at birth; and one sister, Mary Ann Rueth.
