Ruth Stoel—Lifetime Service

Ruth Stoel’s almost 60 years of volunteer service in the Eastern Michigan Division began when she was asked to keep divisional camp programs running after the director became ill. Last year at age 79, Ruth went to Kenya where she helped paint a village corps and ministered to poverty-stricken women and children.

A soldier at the Royal Oak, Mich., Corps, Ruth invested decades teaching sunbeams, moonbeams, singing company, theory at music camp and life skills at explorers’ camp—all while participating in senior band, songsters, women’s ministries and community care ministries.

“Years ago someone asked me why I do all the things I do. I replied, ‘If what I’ve done through the years makes a difference for the good in one person’s life, that’s what it’s all about,’” Ruth concluded.
