Brenda Fruth

Brenda Sue Fruth, 72, of Fostoria, passed away Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023, at Bridge Hospice Care in Findlay.
Brenda was born on July 25, 1950, in Moorehead, Ky., to the late Cecil and Stella (Barnett) Bowen. At a young age, Brenda and her family moved to Bowling Green. She graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1968. She later attended Stautzenberger College where she earned an associate degree.
Brenda met Gary Fruth while cruising in Bowling Green. The two were married Feb. 1, 1969. Gary passed away on Aug. 23, 2013.
Brenda worked for more than 22 years at Brinkman’s Country Corner in Findlay in their deli department. She enjoyed going out to eat, spending time with her family and reading. Brenda read so much that she often had a hard time finding new books to read. She enjoyed overnight trips with her family to Amish Country. Brenda was a kind and gentle soul with a great sense of humor.
Brenda will be missed by her children, Stacey (Eric) Mullholand of Carey and Christopher Fruth of Fostoria; grandsons, Brett, Reece, Mason, Levi and Wesley; along with sisters, Gloria (Ron) Snyder and Glenna (Roy) Fox, numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
In addition to her parents and husband, Brenda was preceded in death by her step-father, Carl Eggleston.
Visitation will be held at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, Carey, on Thursday, Jan. 12, from 4-7 p.m. A private family service will be held and burial will take place at a later date.
