She graduated from West Harrison High School in 1966, and attended Wayne State College. She worked for Upland Industries in Omaha, NE.

With Stefanie, Mariruth traveled to Rome, Paris, Dublin, Scotland, and Hong Kong.

Mariruth loved dancing, especially to the music of the Bee Gees. Her family will fondly remember her loudly playing the Ultimate Bee Gees CDs on every car trip, no matter how short the distance.

She is survived by her daughters, Stefanie Peters and Samantha Peters; stepson, Chris (Anna) Peters; brother, Robert (Rebecca) Flint; sisters, Marcia Flint and Annette Flint; and grandchild, Jay Peters.

    So sorry for your loss.
    I will now associate the excellent Bee Gee song “You should be dancing!” with your mom dancing on clouds to Heaven.

    So sorry for your loss. Got acquainted with Mariruth through my genealogy research and exchange of information between us and working on the Flint Family reunion with her and Dorothy. She was a joy to know and be around.

    I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I will remember her from our Women at the Cross Weekend and the playing of her favorite music during our celebration time. Rest and dance well Mariruth.

    Sending much love and many prayers of comfort to Stefanie and her family during this time of loss. I was pleased to have met Mariruth at a very significant event in Colorado and loved dancing to the BeeGees with her!

    You were one of my closest friends for 50 years. Even though we lived many miles apart we could laugh and enjoy each other lives in long phone calls. I will miss you! So much love to Stefanie and Samantha. Cleo and Bob Lephart

    Having grown up in Little Sioux, I remember Mariruth and all the Flint siblings fondly. She was a bit older than me, but I remember her kindness on the schoolbus….My sincere condolences to all her family at this time.
