Ruth G. Dworkin, age 89, born in Brooklyn, NY died on Friday January 3, 2014, after bravely fighting cancer for five years. Ruth was predeceased by her husband, Lawrence, and their daughter Susan Levering. She is survived by her daughter Nancy D. Miller (Jerry Miller), son Greg (Denise Kaiser), son-in-law Les Baltimore, and grandchildren Lisa and Geordana Weber, Beth and Sam Baltimore, and Larry and Stephen Dworkin. Ruths contributions and awards for her work in the labor movement spanned over five decades, as a Yonkers teacher in PS 32, Yonkers Federation of Teachers Building Rep, Elementary Vice President, the first YFT Staff Director, Grievance Co-Chair, President of Retiree Council 15-16, NYSUT Board Member and the YFT and the Westchester/Putnam Retirees newsletter editor. Ruth is remembered for fierce contract negotiating and for cultivating union leaders through her mentorship. Ruth adored travel, Broadway theater, the ballet, her family and union friends. Our hearts swell with grief, pride and love for our beautiful matriarch. Services will be held at 12:30 pm on Sunday January 5, 2014 at Zion Memorial Chapel 785 E. Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, NY.
