Obituary for Ruth Pauline Lieberman

July 12, 1917 - May 28, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 100


Ruth Pauline Lieberman, 100 of San Antonio left peacefully to be with the Lord and Angels in heaven on May 28, 2018. Born in Berlin, NH on July 12, 1917 daughter of Fred and Ruth Eastman. Ruth graduated from Edward Little High School, Auburn Maine in 1937 and attended Westbrook Junior College in Portland Maine.

Enlisting as a WAAC in 1943 she left Maine to report for active duty at the W.A.A.C. training center at Fort Devens, Mass. From there she was stationed at South Plains Army Air Field in Lubbock, TX. It was here that she met M.Sgt. Carl Lieberman on base at the post office. Ruth went to dental hygienist school and cleaned the teeth of the new recruits as well as officers. She was honorably discharged in 1945 and continued her dental career in the civil service in San Antonio working at Lackland AFB and Randolph AFB.

It was a few years later when Carl after serving overseas, proposed to Ruth and returned home that they were married on November 20, 1954 at the Brooks Field Chapel and made San Antonio their home. They had two children, Susan and Carl Jr. Ruth was very active with her two children during their school years and became a Girl Scout Leader. Many summer vacations were spent at Port Aransas where they enjoyed spending the day on the beach. She enjoyed sewing, cooking and baking, her specialty being a chocolate chiffon cake. She loved her yard and taking care of her plants. She and Carl were members of the Tuesday Twirlers, a Round-Dance Club. After Carl retired, they enjoyed traveling in their Winnebago for many years. They were members of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church for over 50 years. When it came to family, Ruth made sure that birthdays and holidays were always very special baking all sorts of cookies, cakes and pies. She loved being surrounded by all the grandchildren and later great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She was the best Nanny a child could ever have.

Ruth is survived by her daughter Susan Herrera and husband Robert. Grandchildren April Navarrete and husband Juan, Andrea Pogue and husband Jimmie, Jansen Lieberman, Ariel Lee and husband Warren. Great-grandchildren Ashley, Aaron and Amber Davalos, Mason Lee, Ayden and Aleeah Navarrete and Ellie Pogue. Great-great grandchild Alijah Davalos as well as nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Carl Lieberman and her son Carl Lieberman Jr., and was the last survivor of her siblings, sisters Elizabeth and Olive, brothers Albert, Arthur, Edwin and Richard.

May she rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon her.
