WATERTOWN — Ruth Rahn Finley, “Tootie,” passed peacefully the morning of September 11, 2020, at the age of 96. Ruth was born to Paul and Louise Rahn in 1924.

She worked as a medical secretary when she married Harry Davis Finley, III, in 1949 with whom she raised four sons. Ruth loved to laugh, play cards, tag-sale, over-salt her food and spend time with family and friends.

Ruth is predeceased by her parents, husband and two sons Steven and Harry. She is survived by her sons Peter and Rahn, daughters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A private burial will be held at the convenience of the family. A memorial will be held post-pandemic at the Watertown First Congregational Church, where she holds the honor of longest-term member.
