Ruth A. Elizalde

Ruth A. Elizalde (nee King), 78, of Fond du Lac, found peace on Saturday, April 23, 2022, comforted by her daughters at her side. She was born on June 30, 1943 in Fond du Lac, a daughter of the late Joseph and Hildegarde King (nee Kern).

Ruth worked as a dental assistant and many of her years as a nursing assistant at the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, bringing comfort to many of the residents, while creating special relationships.

Ruth enjoyed being around her family, and especially her grandchildren. Not only was she Grandma to her grandchildren, but was known as “Grandma” to many other children.

She enjoyed her long country rides, being surrounded by nature and especially all the time she was able to spend at the family farm. 

Ruth was never at a loss for words. She would carry on long conversations to anyone who would listen and have quite the creative stories.

Those left behind to cherish her memory include her daughters, Debbie (Mark) Hammond, Lisa (Bruce) Abrahamzon, and Carol (Dan) Sabel; grandchildren, Stacy (Brett) Higgins, Nathan Hammond, April Riggs, Susan Mand and, Lucas (Sara) Sabel; step grandchildren, Brandon and Matt (Tiffany) Abrahamzon; great-grandchildren, Jack and Kendall Higgins, Ella Richter, Calvin Herrmann, Jayda and Briea Mand, and Ava Sabel; step great-grandson, Alex Abrahamzon; sisters, Rose Johnson, Susan King, and Donna King, brother Charles King and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Roberto Elizalde, brothers Patrick, Daniel, Richard, George, Michael, David, and John, sisters Jeannie and Mary, and former husband, Nicolas Elizalde Jr.

You will never be forgotten and will live on in the lives of all your family and friends.

A memorial service will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 3:00 pm at Twohig Funeral Home, 305 Fond du Lac Ave Fond du Lac, WI. 54935 and burial will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Eden. Ruth’s Family will greet relatives and friends at the funeral home on Saturday from 1:00 pm until the time of the memorial service.

The family extends a special thank you to Dr. Fredrickson, whom was her doctor for many years, and thank you to the nurses and staff at Agnesian Hospice, and to all the family and friends for all their compassion and care.
