NAPLES, Fla. – Ruth (Johnson) Greenquist, 77, of Naples, Fla., formally of Boston, Mass. and Brewer, passed away Friday, June 17, 2005. She grew up in the West Roxbury section of Boston graduating from Roslindale High School in 1946 and then attended Boston University. Ruth was married to her husband, Thomas Greenquist, for 55 years and they have two sons, Mark and Todd. In 1963, the family moved to Brewer, where they lived for 31 years before moving to Naples, Fla. In 1962, Ruth contracted rheumatoid arthritis and suffered from that disease until the time of her death. In spite of that adversity, she managed to enjoy skiing with her family at Squaw Mountain where they had a ski lodge, and enjoyed playing golf at the Penobscot Valley Country Club in Orono. She enjoyed a good game of bridge as well as the daily crossword puzzle. She particularly enjoyed boating on Penobscot Bay, with her husband Tom, on their 43 foot trawler, aptly named “Splurge”. In 1991, they motored their boat south from Maine to Florida and back with Ruth as the chief navigator, who proved very proficient at the task. While Ruth suffered the ravages of rheumatoid arthritis for 43 years, she never complained even though each day brought pain and discomfort to her. She brought joy to everyone she met with her gift of enjoying life to the fullest of her capabilities. Mrs. Greenquist is survived by her husband, Tom of Naples, Fla.; two sons, Mark and his wife, Joan, of Wall, N.J., Todd and his companion, Jonathan Carr, of Scarborough; three grandchildren, Iris, Nicholas and Dahlia Greenquist; her sister, Vilma (Johnson) Johnson of South Yarmouth, Mass.; and several nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held, the time and place to be announced at a later date. Those wishing to, may make a contribution in Ruth’s name to The Phillips-Strickland House, 21 Boyd St., Bangor, ME 04401, where she spent many hours as a volunteer and made many friends.
