Ruth Bernadette (Studley) Cock

On the morning of Nov. 26, 2022, Ruth Cock passed away at the age of 80. She joins her other half of 51 years, John Cock, after seven years widowed. Her memories live on through her daughter,Terri; son, J.R. (Amy); her grand-children, Mandie (Jordan), Austin (Olivia), Brad (Maddie), Madison, Tessa, Emily, and Jennifer; her great grandchildren, Amiyah, Kaydence, Willow and Khloe; and by all that crossed her path.

Ruth was born on Feb. 21, 1942, to William and Cecile (Gerard) Studley. The family lived in Long Beach, California and included her brother, William Studley Jr. 

After graduating from Newport Harbor High, Ruth went to Louisiana State University to get her Bachelor’s Degree in home economics. She returned to California and began working in a nursing home where one of the residents introduced her to her to John Cock. They married on Sept. 7, 1963. 

On their anniversary in 1979, they arrived in Silverton and settled into their new home. Ruth was a very active member in the Silverton community, working with Meals on Wheels, Silverton Senior Center, Little League, Kiwanis Club, Safety Town, Senior Center Thrift Store, Mural Society, and more. She enjoyed volunteering, organizing events, leading trips for seniors, and attending her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events with John.

At her request, Ruth’s grandchildren are planning a celebration of life to be held noon, Feb. 21, 2023 at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton. It would have been her 81st birthday. All who knew Ruth are welcome to attend and share memories. The family asks in lieu of flowers, bring any photos you have to display at the event. Arrangements made by Unger Funeral Chapel – Silverton.
