August 31, 1928 — November 22, 2016

Ruthella W. (White) Oros, 88, formerly of Cincinnatus, NY, passed away on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.

Born in Cortland, NY, on August 31, 1928, Ruthella was the daughter of the late Leon and Aleta Gates White.  A lifetime resident of the area, she was a member of the United Presbyterian Church of Cincinnatus and a strong supporter of their bell choir.  She retired from Otselic Valley Central School in Georgetown after serving 20 years as the school nurse.  Prior to that, she was employed on the surgical floor of Cortland Regional Medical Center for several years.  She was also a member of the Cincinnatus Heritage Association.  A loving mother and grandmother with an infectious smile, Ruthella will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her daughters, Debra Hubbard of Cortland, Sandra (William Bilka) Huntley of Cortland, and Donna (Brad Ziegler) Quinn of York, PA.  She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Chad (Stacie) Hubbard of Fredericksburg, VA, Shawn (Deborah) Hubbard of Preble, Meggan (Ricky Thomas) Quinn of Chesapeake Beach, MD, Joshua (Stephanie Reip) Quinn of York, PA, and Scott (Tina) Zeigler of Danville, PA; her great-grandchildren, Caleb, Noah, Cody, and Madison Hubbard; a sister-in-law, Jean White of FL; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Joseph Oros, on May 26, 2008; a daughter, Pamela Jo Oros in 1969; and brothers, Richard and Ramon White.

Funeral services will be held at the United Presbyterian Church of Cincinnatus on Saturday, November 26, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor George Carruth and Fred M.S. Downs officiating.  Burial will be in Cincinnatus Cemetery.  The family will be present to receive friends at the church on Saturday from 11:00 a.m.  until the time of the service at 1:00 p.m.  Expressions of sympathy in memory of Ruthella may be directed to the Alzheimer’s Association of CNY, 441 W.
