Ruth Elaine Counts was a beacon of strength, love, and wisdom for her family and the broader Brooklyn community. Born and raised in Michigan, she held an enduring connection to her roots and the values instilled in her by her parents.

A matriarch in every sense of the word, Ruth’s legacy is evident in the lives of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even her great-great-grandchild. Every family gathering was graced with her laughter, wisdom, and the stories of yesteryears.

Her desire to give back extended beyond her immediate family. By suggesting donations to the Wounded Warrior Project in her memory, she showcases her profound empathy and concern for the well-being of others, even in her passing. As we remember Ruth, we celebrate a life lived with purpose, love, and a deep commitment to family and community.
