Baker City, Oregon Ruth M. Wilson, 93, of Lake Oswego, a former longtime Baker City businesswoman, died May 2, 2003. Her memorial service was May 17 in the chapel of River View Cemetery at Portland. Ruth was born on Aug. 8, 1909, at Schofield, Wis. Her mother, Mrs. Durkee, owned a knitting shop in Baker City for many years. Ruth and her first husband, Bill Stofft, had two children, Paul William and Lois Elaine. In 1935, the Stoffts opened a corner grocery store at Sixth and Broadway streets in Baker City.

The business offered free delivery in the city limits. Life was hard, but business was constant. After Bill’s sudden death in 1948, Ruth continued to run the store until 1950 when she closed it and moved to Portland. Her interest in music got her a job as a salesperson and demonstrators of pianos, organs and sheet music. She also pursued her passion for travel. She took her first cruise in 1958 from Los Angeles to Hawaii. She then took a solo cruise to Alaska. Her most ambitious cruise was an international adventure from Southern California to Hawaii, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and home again. She...
