Obituary for Ruth Janet Reed

Ruth Janet Reed, 96, passed away at her home in Titusville, NJ on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Born and raised in Bloomfield, NJ, she began a nursing career after graduating as a Registered Nurse from Poly Clinic Hospital in New York City. Ruth’s nursing profession entered a long term pause upon her marriage to Charles I. Reed in 1949. Ruth and Charles eventually moved to Titusville where she raised 4 sons and spent almost 70 years enjoying 2 Titusville residences. As her 4 sons became young men, Ruth rejoined the nursing profession, first working for a family medical practice in Pennington and later at The Lawrenceville Preparatory School.
Swimming and physical fitness were lifelong passions for Ruth. She was a member of the Ravine Swim Club in Ewing the majority of her adult life and was extremely proud of her ability to swim a daily mile during her later years. She was also extremely proud of her four sons’ progress and accomplishments as they navigated adult life. She thoroughly enjoyed family get together‘s where she made sure to provide requested family favorites.
Predeceased by her parents, Daniel and Helen Lehman Guldner, and her husband, Charles I. Reed, she is survived by her 4 sons and daughters-in-law: Daniel I. and Kathy Reed of Flemington, Charles Robert and Kathleen Reed of Marlton, Craig Allen and Lynn Lincoln Reed of Titusville and Jeffrey David and Diane Reed of Upper Black Eddy. Ruth also enjoyed her 7 grandchildren, Dan, Jennifer, Charles, Matthew, Courtney, Kelsey and Kayla along with 5 great grandchildren.
Since Ruth was a long-term member of the Titusville First Presbyterian Church, she requests any donations be made to the church in lieu of flowers or remembrances. (Titusville First Presbyterian Church 48 River Drive Titusville, NJ 08560) Private graveside services will be held at Harbourton Cemetery at a future date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Blackwell Memorial Home of Pennington. (
