Ruth J. Reardon, 90, of Mahanoy City, and previously of Lititz, died peacefully on Dec. 29, 2018 surrounded by family.

Born in Mahanoy City on June 11, 1928, she was the beloved daughter of the late Edward and Alice (Greiner) Thomas. Her husband, Leo, died in December 1996.

She was a business woman, owning and operating the Fivepointville Hotel and The End. With her husband Leo, she owned and operated the Historic GreenTree Inn and Hildy’s Tavern. Ruth never met a stranger and was a friend to all. She cherished her family and was a wonderful mother and devoted grandmother and great-grandmother. She lived a life full of laughter and fun. She enjoyed many summers at the bay, spending time at the beach, crabbing, and driving her boat.

Ruth is survived by two daughters: Donna R. of Lititz; and Alicia A. (wife of Ronald P. Snavely) of Quarryville; four grandchildren: Damon, Kerri, Jenna and Kristin; and six great-grandchildren: Kaleb, Sullivyn, Sawyer, Adrian, Callie and Colin.

She was preceded in death by two brothers: Teddy and Bobby Thomas.

Ruth’s celebration of life and interment will be at the privacy of the family.
