Ruth Jeanette Veach

Ruth Jeanette (Eichelberger) Veach, “Ruthie”, age 82, of Osage Beach, Missouri, left this life to join her precious Father in Heaven, August 12, 2022, at Stonebridge Senior Living, Osage Beach, Missouri.

Ruthie loved Jesus more than anything. She meant so much to so many people, she touched everyone that knew her in a special way, whether it be her giving nature, her kindness, her orneriness, or her wanting to argue.  To her family, she was everything rolled into one.  Ruth loved to play Scrabble, sing, and watch Apple TV.  In her mind, she loved to travel to places all around the world.  Ruthie resided at Stonebridge Senior Living where she adored many of the staff.

Ruthie and her husband, Bob Veach, owned several restaurants through the years, and will always be remembered for the awesome cooking they shared. Ruthie had an infectious smile that would light up a room.

Ruthie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Bob Veach, her sister, and several other family members.

Ruthie leaves behind her children, Ronette and Tony Graham, Greg Dothage, Barry Dothage, and Pam and Robert Jessop.  She also leaves behind her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she had a special bond with; two brothers; a sister-in-law; and her four-legged fur baby, Kona.

When we lost Ruthie, it took a piece of our hearts, but heaven gained a one-of-a-kind angel.  Ruthie will be, and is, missed so very much.  Always on our mind.

Family will receive friends at Ruth’s daughter and son-in-law, Tony and Roni’s home on Sunday, September 11, 2022, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
