     Ruth Ann Detwiler, 94, of Shelocta, passed away after a brief illness Sunday morning, February 20, 2022 at sunrise surrounded by her loving family.

     She was born along Lower Piney Creek, Woodbury Township, daughter of the late Matthew and Mary (Sutlich) Mumich.  On August 23, 1950 she married W. Dale Detwiler in Altoona.

     Surviving are her beloved husband of 71 years; three sons: Robert D. (Kathy) Detwiler of Worthington, Gary E. (Donna) Detwiler of Dayton and Scott D. (Charlotte) Detwiler of Punxsutawney; a son-in-law, Richard Cessna of Girty; a daughter-in-law, Jodie Detwiler of Cranberry Twp.; nine grandchildren: Janice Cessna (Larry Finkel), Erik Detwiler, Garrett Detwiler, Matthew Detwiler (LaKiesha), Christy Welton (Seth), Erin Brant (Jason), Brianna Seyler (Aaron), Tiffany Anthony and Ryan Detwiler; and eight great-grandchildren.

     She was preceded in death by a daughter, Kathie Cessna; a son, Bruce Detwiler; seven brothers; and four sisters.

     Ruth was a 1945 graduate of Williamsburg High School.  She loved traveling and visiting family and friends with her husband, Dale. However, Ruth was always relieved to get back home to her favorite destination, where she was at her best, taking care of her family and being a homemaker.
