Ruth Uram Obituary

Of Penn Hills, age 86, died on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

Ruth was the beloved wife of David Uram for 61 years.

Ruth was a 1955 graduate of Swissvale High school and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career at Swissvale School District which later merged into Woodland Hills Schools from where Ruth retired. In retirement, Ruth did not sit idly by.  She and David trained therapy dogs and used them to bring comfort and joy to residents of hospitals, nursing homes, assistant living facilities, and veterans hospitals. Also, for a few years, Ruth volunteered at Penn Hills School District to teach and encourage students in one-on-one sessions.

As per Ruth’s wishes, there will not be a visitation or service. She will be laid to rest in William Penn Cemetery.
