Obituary

RUTH L. CHESEBRO

NORWICH: Ruth L Chesebro, 89, formerly of Sherburne and Oxford, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at her home with family by her side.
She was born October 4, 1929, in Lincklaen, to the late Carl W. and Marie Lou Kingsbury Locke. She was a graduate from South Otselic High School. On August 12, 1948 Ruth married Neal W Chesebro in Sherburne.
Her work career included several retail stores including Bartle’s Pharmacy in Oxford plus the Oxford School System, Chenango Memorial Hospital cafeteria and Norwich Togs. She and her husband Neal operated Hoppie’s variety Store in Oxford and they eventually combined Hoppie’s with the Red Diner in Oxford for one-stop convenience for your morning paper, a doughnut, coffee and conversation.
Ruth is spoken of as a sweet and gentle person. She loved jokes, even the corny ones, as well as watching Syracuse basketball and Major League Baseball. Ruth will be remembered for her sweet tooth, her fondness of having friends stop by for a cup of coffee and her love of her pets. One of her favorite things was to have her children, grandchildren, family and friends visit and share stories.
Surviving are her children, Connie and Gary Morack of Norwich; Carolyn and Michael Highland of Mt. Vernon, Washington; Craig and Pam Chesebro of Oxford; Chris and Ginny Chesebro of Norwich; Cindy and William Comings of South Plymouth; two sisters, Evelyn Locke of Shreveport, Louisiana, Clara and Earl Horton of Sherburne and a brother, Alvin Locke of Missouri, 14 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband Neal and brother Levi.
Honoring Ruth’s request, services will be private at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, her family has requested that memorial contributions be made to the Chenango County S.P.C.A., 6160 Co. Rd. 32, Norwich, NY 13815; or Norwich Emergency Squad, 31 East Main Street, Norwich, NY 13815
Services are entrusted to Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Homes, Inc., 10 S. Main St., Sherburne, NY 13460.
