Ruth "Shorty" Eschbach, 70, of Payne, Ohio, passed away Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Paulding County Hospital.
Ruth was born in Paulding on November 23, 1951, a daughter of the late Beulah (Zartman) and Norman Eschbach.
She retired from Pyromation but she will be remembered most for her "professional" popcorn popping! Ruth loved to bowl in leagues and sing in the church choir. She was known to cheer for Ohio State sports, watch Andy Griffith, the Sound of Music and Hallmark movies. Her thoughtfulness will never be forgotten by her family and friends.
Ruth will be sadly missed by her siblings, Bill (the late Teen) Eschbach, Judy (Ray) Lyons and Robert (Kimberly) Eschbach and many nieces and nephews.
