Life Story for Ruth Freedman

Ruth Freedman
Ruth Freedman, 89, passed away on July 28, 2017 at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, California with her sons by her side. She died peacefully a few days after suffering a massive stroke. Ruth was born on September 9, 1927 in Vienna, Austria. Because of the worsening conditions for Jews in Austria, she and her family immigrated to Australia in 1938. Ruth lived in Sydney, Australia until 1947 when she came to the United States. She attended UC Berkeley, where she obtained a BA in psychology in 1950, and the degree Master of Social Welfare in 1954. She married Edward A. Freedman in 1952 in Stockton and became a US citizen in 1956. In 1969, she became a licensed clinical social worker and obtained a California teaching credential in community service leadership training. However, she was mainly a homemaker and resided in Stockton. Ruth had a rich sense of humor, loved eating interesting foods, and had an eye for artistic design and detail. She enjoyed taking classes at San Joaquin Delta College related to her diverse hobbies and passions including dress-making, foreign languages (especially French), gardening (especially cacti and succulents), creating cassette recordings, but above all, photography. In addition to receiving local awards and recognition for her work in photography, she got an honorable mention in the Natural History Magazine’s national photo contest in 1981, with her winning photo “Bell Pepper” appearing on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Ruth traveled extensively, visiting Fiji, Italy, Japan, France, New Zealand, Turkey, and many others. She leaves behind her sons Lucas and Walden (Rusdiye), half-brother Brian Seidler (Donna), and grandson Joseph A. Freedman. She is preceded in death by her husband Edward A. Freedman, her parents Marcus and Frances Seidler, and her half-brother Steven Seidler. The family would like to thank Ruth’s special helpers Sandra Mansbridge of Tracy, Ana Medrano and Sonia Vallejo of Stockton, and the staff at Rio Las Palmas, especially Lizeth Guerrero, where Ruth was well-cared for in her last year of life.
