Dinah Louise Fruth, 68, of Fletcher, passed away Saturday, July 27, 2019 at the Elizabeth House in Flat Rock.

 

Dinah is preceded in death by her biological father, Thomas Hosler; her  parents, Norman and Eunice Fruth; and two siblings Joseph and Nancy Fruth.

 

Dinah grew up in Fostoria Ohio then attended Southern Illinois University where she received a degree in therapeutic recreation. After graduating from SIU, she backpacked around Europe for awhile.  She then worked for the Red Cross to help relocate Vietnamese refugees housed at Fort Indiantown Gap in Pennsylvania who were displaced at the end of the Vietnam War. Dinah then took a therapist position at the Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC, and then worked for the USO in Okinawa Japan.

 

Dinah returned to Fostoria and attended Bowling Green State University where she received a degree in photography. Dinah then moved to Boulder Colorado where she worked for the Boulder Police Department and learned how to make pottery. While in Boulder, Dinah became an avid jogger and enjoyed skiing. In 1999, Dinah relocated to North Carolina with her mother Eunice Fruth. Dinah continued to hone her pottery skills and loved working out at the YMCA in Fletcher. She became a very active member at the Feed and Seed church in Fletcher; where she booked Bluegrass bands to play on Friday and Saturday nights and would attend those concerts with her mother.

 

Dinah is survived by her two brothers, Ed Fruth of Greenville South Carolina and Jon Fruth of Kokomo Indiana; and many nieces and nephews and their children.

 

A celebration of Dinah’s life will take place at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday August 31, 2019 at the Feed and Seed.

 

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
