Obituary for Ruth Litke Chandler

DAYVILLE - Ruth Litke Chandler, age 91, passed into the arms of Jesus Christ on December 14, 2018. Ruth was born in Brooklyn, CT on November 17, 1927, the daughter of Walter and Emily Litke (Balkowski). She worked at Killingly Central School as a teacher’s aide in the 1970’s and at Glass Containers in Dayville in the 1980’s.
She loved her family and home but her happy place was growing up on the farm on Brickyard Road. Ruth was a farm girl at heart tending her gardens, beehives, and working on stone walls in her late 60’s. In her later years Ruth could always be found working in the puzzle room at Maple Court and at the Westview Nursing Home.
She is predeceased by her loving husband Stanley C. Chandler Sr. who she was married to for 49 years, her beautiful daughter Kim and her siblings, Walter, Sarah, and Sam. She will lovingly be remembered by her three sons Stanley of Melrose, CT, David of West Milford, NJ, Kenneth and his wife Christine of Sterling, CT, ten grandchildren, six great grandchildren to whom she was fondly known as Bochie, and her sisters Esther Gallup, Hannah McNally, and sister in law Joyce Chandler.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, December 28, 2018 at The Cornerstone Baptist Church, 247 Broad Street, Danielson at 11:00 A.M. In lieu of flowers donations to Ruth’s memory can be made to Cornerstone Baptist Church, Sunday School Department, 247 Broad St., Danielson, CT 06239.
