Senior Living Resident Spotlight – Ruth Ecker


Mrs. Ruth Ecker was born in Nork, New Jersey but was raised and spent the majority of her life in Maplewood, New Jersey. Ruth grew up in Maplewood along with her two sisters.


While in school Mrs. Ecker met her wonderful husband whom she spent more years with than can be counted.


Together the couple had one daughter named Cynthia and later in life Ruth moved down south to be closer to her. While not working as an Executive Secretary Ruth’s passion in life was breeding, showing and judging Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs.


One of the things she’s most proud of in life was when she was invited to judge dogs at the affluent Albert Payson Terhune Estate in Pumpton Lakes, New Jersey.
