Born and raised in Saugus, Ruth came to live in Revere over seventy years ago (70). She and her beloved husband of almost 72 years, Arthur T. Alexander, owned and operated the Revere Bus Company. Ruth not only managed most of the office work, she would often take the role of driver and repairwoman for the organization. They were the most loving couple, always together, and always seemed to be in synch with each other.

 

Besides her husband, Arthur, she is the devoted mother of Arthur T. Alexander Jr. and his wife Cynthia Ruffin of Hampton Falls, NH, Tracey B. Keefe and her husband Edmund M. Keefe, III of Bakersville, CA, and the late Susan L. Ricciardi. She is the cherished grandmother of Heather Widfeldt and her husband Randy of Gloucester, Matthew Alexander and his wife Koryn of Middleton, Ashley Parks and her husband Daniel of Lynnfield, Thomas A. Keefe and Daniel M. Keefe, both of Tehachapi, CA. She was the sister of the late William and Herbert Irving Barber. She is also lovingly survived by five (5) great-grandchildren. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, One Bulfinch Place, Suite 201, Boston, MA 02114-2931.
