Ruth K. Warburton Hardy, 90, passed away on Nov. 5, 2017, at University of Utah Hospital. She was born July 12, 1927, to Leslie and Edith Warburton of Erda, Utah. She lived in Erda until the age of 6 when she moved to Tooele where she remained a life-long resident.

Ruth was married to Dale E. Hardy until his passing in 1996. She retired from Tooele Army Depot with 25 years of service. In her younger days, everyone knew of Cactus (her nickname) and Peanuts (her horse). She was an original member of the Tooele Bit ‘n’ Spur and was Grand Marshall in 2002. Mom’s love and passion for horses and riding was only surpassed by the love she had for her family.

She is survived by three children: Dalene (Jerry) Syndergaard, Richard (Lisa) Hardy and Toni (Kelley) Koford; seven grandchildren: Tyler, Staci, Greg, Richelle, Dan, Colby and Courtney. She also has nine great grandchildren with one more on the way. Preceded in death by her parents, spouse and three older brothers, Sherman, Jerry and Peter.

Viewing will be 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 8 at Tate Mortuary, 110 S. Main in Tooele, and one hour prior to graveside services, which will be held at 1 p.m. on Nov. 9, 2017, at Tooele City Cemetery.
