In Memoriam: Ruth Richardson

Ruth Richardson

Ruth Richardson, whose passion for the Memorial Art Gallery spanned eight decades, died December 14, 2009.

Richardson began visiting the Gallery as a child and took her first art classes at the Creative Workshop in the 1920s. Years later, after a long career at Eastman Kodak Company, she and her husband, Bill, would become members of the Gallery’s Director’s Circle. Following Bill’s death in 2004, she continued to support the Gallery, most recently as a charter member of UR’s George Eastman Circle.
