Albany- Ruth Ann “Ruthie” Bornt, 76, a longtime resident of Raymertown and more recently Green Island, died peacefully Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at Albany Medical Center following injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Ruth was a member of Evangelical Lutheran Church of Raymertown, the former Raymertown Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary and a devoted friend to many. As a younger lady, she loved to travel to York Beach, Maine, with her family and friends. More recently, she enjoyed playing the slot machines at Atlantic City and the Racino in Saratoga, “dining out” at Hot Dog Charlie’s, and solving word search puzzles.
