Ruthie Rodeen, 90th Birthday


Ruthie Rodeen

90th Birthday

Ruthie was born Feb. 2, 1929, in Sandpoint to Norwegian immigrants, Mina and Antone Slette. She was the 10th of the 11 children in the family.

She was raised in Sandpoint and graduated in the class of 1946 at the age of 17. She has lived in Washington, Alaska and Arizona before settling in the Lewiston/Clarkston area where she lived for 40 years.

She moved to Coeur d’Alene three years ago to be closer to family. She enjoys her independent lifestyle, remaining active with church, the Red Hats, bingo, playing cards, activities at the senior center, music and events with family and friends.

A birthday celebration will be held Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, at Lakewood Ranch Apartments, 3755 N. Fourth St., Coeur d’Alene, where Ruthie now resides. Please join her daughters, Lorraine and Patricia, in celebrating this milestone birthday of their young-at-heart mother. We will be serving finger foods, cake and refreshments in the Community Room from 2-5 p.m.
