Obituary

Auburn - Ruth Doris L. (Kruse) Moreland, 83, joined our Heavenly Father on Saturday night at Betz Nursing Home in Auburn. She was born Dec. 5, 1938 to Fred and Goldie Kruse in Auburn, IN. She graduated high school from Riverdale and received her Associates Degree from Anderson College in Anderson, IN. While raising three children with her ex-husband Jerry Moreland, who preceded her in death in 2017, Ruth Doris worked at Kruse’s, John Deer and Cooper Tire before becoming a missionary in Israel. She moved to Bethlehem in 1986 and lived there for nearly 10 years working in a home for special needs children. While living in Israel, she changed her first name to Ruth. After the Gulf War, she moved to Brampton, Ontario, where she became an active volunteer at Hope Center, a welcoming place for homeless or persons needing help. After being away from Auburn nearly 30years, she returned in December to be reunited with her family. Doris was a member of County Line Church and had faith the size of a mustard seed, which is one of the smallest seeds but when planted becomes one of the largest garden plants. Doris shared her faith and spread God’s love to many persons who crossed her path while living abroad or in Auburn. She is survived by her three children: Robert (Jodi) Moreland of Fremont, Renee (Donnie) Gould of Stuart, FL, and Randy (Amy) Moreland of Auburn; her sister Helen Rowe of Leo, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
