posted by Joshua Smith.

Churchville – Ruth Alexander Logan, 60 went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, January 16, 2022 with her husband and children by her side.

Ruth was born August 20, 1961, daughter of the late David and Gladys Alexander.

Ruth lived with commitment, integrity and joy.  A life-long member of the Churchville community, Ruth served on the staff of Roberts Wesleyan College since 1990.  Her first role was in the Office of Development for 10 years, until she was asked to serve as Director of Human Resources.  In 2004 she was appointed as the Vice President for Administration and became a member of the President’s Cabinet.  In 2017 she transitioned to Vice President for Student and Organizational Development, overseeing employees, student life, athletics, emergency response, diversity initiatives and history/archives.  Her career and ministry at Roberts Wesleyan College spanned 30 years and was focused on the high calling of transformational Christian education and she used her voice and role to support, clarify, mentor and encourage both staff and students alike.

Ruth will also be remembered as an avid gardener who enjoyed tending to her extensive flower beds.  She and her husband had a passion for travel, taking trips around the world.  However, her greatest joy was caring for her 2 children and 5 grandchildren.  Ruth spent her life creating a home filled with grace and love.

Ruth’s faith in God was her upmost priority, living her life as a reflection of the Lord’s love to those around her.  She was an active member of Northgate Free Methodist Church and was blessed by the friendships and fellowship of that community.

Holding on to her memory is her husband of 37 years, Mark Logan; son, Tyler (Rebecca) Logan; daughter, Elise (Shane) Fraser; brothers, David (Barbara), Brad, Lance (Kathy); and 5 beautiful grandchildren, Jack, Evelyn Grace, Henry, Callie and Banks.  Friends may call on Friday, January 28th from 4-7 pm at the H.E. Turner & Co. Funeral Home, 51 South Lake Avenue, Bergen.  A celebratory Memorial Service of Ruth’s life will take place at Pearce Memorial Church on Sunday, January 30th at 1:30pm, 4322 Buffalo Road, North Chili, NY 14514.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Diversity Initiatives Fund at Roberts Wesleyan College, 2301 Westside Drive, Rochester, NY 14624.
