Marguerite Ruff, 99, passed away peacefully on July 30, 2022. She was born December 14, 1922 in Quitman, Mississippi to Ernest and Beulah; the youngest of 6 children. In 1950 she married the love of her life, Stanley Ruff. In 1959, they moved to Tampa, Florida where they owned and operated Artcraft Sign Company in Oldsmar. Marguerite was a homemaker and helped run the sign company, and took great pride in raising their 3 daughters. She was completely devoted to her family, and they were equally devoted to her. She loved bingo and people watching; one of her favorite pastimes was going to the mall for a hamburger and then sitting to watch all the shoppers go by. Marguerite had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh and always had a smile for everyone. She is preceded in death by her loving husband Stanley, her eldest daughter Barbara; her parents and her 5 siblings. She is survived by her daughters, Patsy and Mary Lou; grandchildren Dean, Monica, Ray and Parisa, and 6 greatgrandchildren as well as many relatives in Mississippi.
