RUTH EVELYN EDELSTEIN: Beloved wife of the late Bernard Edelstein and a long time resident of Pittsburgh, died February 22  at the age of 97. Ruth had been a snowbird for about 35 years when she decided, at age 96, to move to Florida permanently. She spent the last 8 months of her life thoroughly enjoying the Assisted Living she had moved into in Lake Worth, FL. Her greatest joy was her family. She had two daughters, Molla Siegel (Gary) and Marsha (Marly) Stone Franks. She is survived by two grandsons, Matthew Siegel (Erika) and Stephen Siegel (Pippa) and five great grandchildren; Avi, Marley, Betty, Rosa, and Levi, who was born on February 14, 2019. Ruth was a member of B'nai B'rith, Beth Shalom Synagogue, a proud owner of a Hole in One at Schenley Park Golf Course, and an active participant in the Pittsburgh Meals on Wheels program. She will long be remembered as "Little Ruthie" and as a great volleyball player both at the YMHA and in the water at several area swimming pools. Service and Interment were held at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated.


Send Condolence

Molla and Family, Ruth was a wonderful person and taught me many things over our 20 plus years working together. I often think of her words of wisdom and kindness she shared with me. Ruth was one of a kind...the shortest person in the room, but with the biggest heart of all. May she now rest with her beloved Bernie. Donna Bricker
