Ruth J. Bingaman

Ruth Jean (Scheel) Bingaman, age 91, passed away Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at Gasconade Manor Nursing Facility in Owensville.

She was born in Redbird on December 27, 1924, at the home of her parents, Henry Louis and Nora Lula Rebecca (Rethmeyer) Scheel. She was one of four siblings.

On May 14, 1944, Ruth was united in marriage to Warren Thomas Bingaman in St. Louis. They moved to Redbird and spent the rest of their lives there. He preceded her in death on June 22, 1982.

Ruth worked for many years at Mall’s Supermarket in Maplewood, Mo. When she and Tom moved to Redbird, she began working at Deb’s Shoe Company in Owensville. When it closed, she went to the Brown Shoe Company until it also closed. She then began her career with Missouri Home Care as a helper to home bound folks in the Owensville, Bland, and Belle areas. Ruth worked for over 35 years before retiring. During the last several years of her life, she also worked as the custodian at the Bland Post Office. Every morning Ruth would raise the flag, sweep the lobby and greet everyone in town.

Ruth was a member of the Bland First Baptist Church.

Ruth was always an outdoors person. She loved to help her “boys” in the hay, feed the animals on the farm, ride horses, and do anything outdoors. She made the absolute best fried chicken in the world as all of her family would agree.

Ruth was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, Tom; her parents, Henry and Nora Scheel; and her siblings, Ralphord Rethmeyer Scheel, Dorcus Marie Scheel and Kenneth Henry Scheel; a niece, Nancy Helen (Scheel) Havner; a nephew, John Mark Scheel; and one great-great nephew, Jayce Emerson Ray.

She lives on through her many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews, two great-great-great nieces, as well as many extended family members and friends.

Visitation for Ruth will be held from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at Sassmann’s Chapel in Bland.

Funeral services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 7, 2016 at Sassmann’s Chapel in Bland. Interment will follow in the Bowen Cemetery.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to the Bowen Cemetery Fund.
