      Ora Ruettimann - September 03, 2010 Ora Anna (Sailors) Ruettimann passed away quietly into the hands of Jesus on Sept. 3, 2010, and rejoined her sweetheart and lifetime companion, Glenn. She lived a full 87 years and she treasured the almost 60 years she and Glenn spent together. She was born Oct. 19, 1922, near Palisade, Neb., to John Chaney Sailors and Anna Frances (Harrington) Sailors. Her parents, her sister Parnel, brothers Gerald (Judd), Johnny, Forest (Frosty), Orris (Cudge) and Sonny all preceded her in death. Her father died when she was only 10, making her family very close and relying on one another. She received Jesus as her personal Savior when she was 13 years of age, and was baptized in the Frenchman River behind the Hamlet Union Church, where she attended her entire life. Her father dug the basement of the original church when she was a child, and she sat on the same little wire chairs in Sunday School as her daughter, granddaughters, and great grandchildren did later. She served in many capacities in her church and cherished her church family. She graduated from Hamlet High School in 1940, where she was valedictorian of her class. She married her sweetheart, Glenn Dale Ruettimann, on March 28, 1942, in Yuma, Ariz. Shortly thereafter, Glenn entered the armed services in World War II, while Ora worked various jobs awaiting his return. After Glenn was discharged from the service, they moved to their farm north of Hamlet where they raised alfalfa and milked dairy cows. Their daughter, Glenda Jo, was born in 1948. In 1967, they moved into Hamlet when health reasons forced Glenn to quit farming. At this time Ora joined the workforce, first at Lytle’s Service in Hamlet and later in Wauneta at several businesses, including the Jack and Jill Store and the WearHouse clothing store. She retired in 1984, after which she and Glenn enjoyed their home and garden, doing crafts, traveling and spending time with their granddaughters, Jami Rai and Courtney Beth. Glenn passed away April 17, 2001, and Ora has dreamed of being with him and her family since. In 2005, Ora moved to Wauneta where she enjoyed being near her family, friends and attending the Senior Center. Ora has resided at Heritage of Wauneta since June 29, 2010. Ora will be remembered for finding good in everyone and always thanking the Lord. Anyone visiting with her knew her pride and joy was her family. Her surviving family includes daughter Jo and husband Ed Arenz of Wauneta; granddaughter Jami Rai Arenz and her daughters Kacie Jo and Ansley Rai of Wauneta and granddaughter Courtney Beth and husband Brent Criffield and son Jacob Edward of Kearney; sisters-in-law Leatha Sailors, Thelma Denbo, Jan Sailors, Fern Schwenk and many nieces and nephews. Services were held Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 10:00 a.m. MDT at the Hamlet Union Church in Hamlet with Pastor Kevin McGraw officiating, with interment following at Meadow Lawn Cemetery, Hamlet. Memorials are designated to Hamlet Union Church and the Wauneta Senior Center. Liewer Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
