Ruth Golv, age 90 of Edina, MN, died Sunday evening, December 17, 2017, at NC Little Memorial Hospice in Edina.

Ruth J. (Johnson) Golv was born August 23, 1927, in Evanston, Illinois.

Ruth was a homemaker for her family, a partner in ministry with her husband, a librarian and a weaver who taught and shared her talents. She was known and loved in Wibaux, MT, Fargo and Wahpeton, ND, Northfield, MN, and Brookings, SD, where her husband served congregations. She and her husband have been members of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd since 1982.

Since their retirement, she and her husband divided their time between their home in Edina and their cabin on Kabekona Lake near Walker, MN. She was a great treasure for her husband, her children and her grandchildren. Now her Lord has invited her to come home. We will continue to celebrate her life.
