<div itemprop="description">Ruth Dora Mausolf <br> <br>BORN <br>May 1, 1927 <br>Sterley, Germany <br> <br>PASSED AWAY <br>March 2, 2017 <br>Edmonton, Canada <br> <br>Age ~ 89 <br> <br> <br>To cherish her memory, Ruth leaves sister Isolde Muller (Bodien), sons Hans-Joachim (Carolyn) Mausolf of Sturgeon County, Stephen (Adriana) Mausolf of Sturgeon County, daughters Susanne Mausolf of Edmonton and Eva (John) Mausolf of Hinton. She leaves 6 grandchildren, Michelle, Albert, Paul, Michael (Kimberley), Nickolas (Tiffany), Perren and 2 great grandchildren, Penelope and Alexadra. <br> <br>Ruth was predeceased by her parents Emiel Bodien and Helen (Werner), husband Paul Franz and sister Edith Bodien of Ratzeburg, Germany. Ruth leaves many relatives of the Bodien, Hietmann, Brinckmann and Gelinski families in Germany. <br> <br>The second eldest of 3 children, Ruth was born to Emiel and Helen (nee Werner) Bodien on May 1, 1927 in the village of Sterley, Germany. Ruth married Paul Franz Mausolf on December 3, 1948 near Ratzeburg, Germany. The young couple settled with Ruth’s grandparents near Kogel until they immigrated to Canada after WWII. In 1955 Ruth joined her husband Paul in Edmonton, Alberta. <br> <br>After living in the community of Woodcroft during the 1950’s and 60’s, they moved to the farming region of Horse-Hills, Northeast of Edmonton in 1969. Having grown up in a small farming community in Germany, moving to the acreage allowed Ruth to return to her farming roots. Her mixed farming operation, Edelweiss Farms, was an active concern into the early 2000’s. Ruth was the publisher and editor of the Alberta Goat Breeders Association’s magazine SLANT for 2 decades. She had a large herd of purebred goats and sold milk and breeding stock to many customers. Ruth raised many championship goats, winning prizes not only in Alberta but also at the CNE in Toronto and the PNE in Vancouver. Ruth lived on her farm until her passing. <br> <br>In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta. <br> <br> <br> <br> <br></div>
