Ruth Zaun Obituary


Ruth Augusta Zaun, 91, a lifelong resident of Bethlehem, passed away on March 2, 2024 at her residence. Ruth was the widow of William F. Zaun. Born on February 7, 1933, she was a daughter of the late Charles and Esther (Toth) Schmidt. Ruth was a proud graduate of Liberty High School, class of 1951. Her work ethic shone brightly during her years as a cashier at Shop Rite in Bethlehem, from where she eventually retired.

Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her sons, William F. Zaun Jr. and his wife Sharon, and Jeffrey W. Zaun and his wife Karen; grandchildren, Ryan, Kimberly, Hunter, and Keaton; great-grandchildren, Tyler, Kylee, Alexis, Kaden, and Madison; a great-great-granddaughter; sister, Carol.
