State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently presented a commendation to honor the 100th birthday of Ruth Woodburn. 
 
Ruth Jane Woodburn was born on January 14, 1916, the daughter and only child of Jane and Henry Porter.  Ruth grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio and graduated from Shaker Heights High School.  She also attended and graduated from Denison University.  Ruth married John (Jack) W. Woodburn on April 23, 1941.  They moved to Briar Hill Drive in Solon in 1949, where they were both active members of the community.
 
Ruth and Jack traveled extensively around the world visiting each and every continent of the globe and seeing many of the world’s treasures.  They also enjoyed extensive fishing trips in every providence of Canada.
 
Ruth and Jack have two children, John and Bill; three grandchildren, David, Laura and Annie; and five great-grandchildren ages 17 to 30.


"I was honored to celebrate the birthday of such a fine Ohioan," said Rep. Anielski.  "Her family and friends enjoyed the party with the sharing of many memories."
