Ruth Marilyn Reinhardt (nee Gibson), 81, passed away January 9, 2020 in Belleville, IL. She was born September 16, 1938 to Marvin Gibson and Ruth Gibson (nee Richards).

Ruth worked at Marv’s pastry shop in Millstadt for many years. She was very social. If there was a gathering or event, you can bet she was in attendance!
