Ruth Boss Morito

A long time Evanston resident, Ruth Charlotte Boss Morito passed away on December 27, 2012 after a long illness. She was the mother of James “Jimmy” Morito, who died in July 2011, and Charles Morito, who died in May 1970. Both sons were ETHS graduates.

A grandson, Charles “Charlie” Morito of Carlsbad, California, survives Ruth.

Ruth was born in Washington, D.C. on August 26, 1925 to Hazel and Rev. Dr. Charles F. Boss, Jr. Her father was Executive Secretary of the Board of World Peace for the Methodist Church and lifelong peace activist.

A well-known local artist, Ruth often set up her easel on Central Street and painted local streetscapes. She won first place at several Evanston Women’s Club art shows. One of her mentors was Walter Burt Adams, a nationally known painter of Evanston buildings. In her later years, Ruth could be found most day in front of her house, greeting commuters, schoolchildren and neighbors. Her friends will greatly miss her smiles and stories.

A memorial service will be held on February 10 at 4 pm at First United Methodist Church of Evanston, 516 Church Street.  Internment at Memorial Park Cemetery is private.
