Ruth E. Musil

July 3, 1922 — March 25, 2023

Ruth Evelyn (Huff) Musil was born on July 3, 1922, at Marysville, KS, the daughter of Leonard and Nelle Huff. She died on March 25, 2023, at 100 years of age. A visitation was held on Friday, March 31st, at Padden Funeral Chapel in Frankfort from 3 until 8 p.m. The family received friends from 5-7 p.m. Funeral services were planned for 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at the United Methodist Church in Frankfort. Rev. Jim Akins officiated. Pallbearers were Adam Musil, Taylor Musil, Clayton Hill, Dason Hill, Chase Bryan, Ryan Tarry and Barry Jones. Burial followed in the Frankfort City Cemetery. Ruth attended school in Marysville, graduating from Marysville High School with the class of 1940. She earned her teaching certificate at Emporia State Teachers College in 1942 and Kansas State University in 1944. She was a teacher, mostly in one-room schools, from 1940 to 1949. She was an Avon representative in the 1960s and was a teacher/librarian aide at the Frankfort schools from 1968 until 1982, when she retired. She married Marion Musil on July 29, 1945, at the First Christian Church in Marysville. They lived in Marysville for a year before purchasing a farm west of Frankfort, KS. Ruth was active in the Frankfort United Methodist Church, PEO, Priscilla Club and Allison Club. She was an avid reader and also enjoyed card clubs with her Marysville and Frankfort friends. She always had a quilt or some type of handiwork project at her side. She was a life-long supporter of her three children 's activities. Ruth's joy in life was watching her children, and eventually her grandchildren, in sports. Win or lose, both she and Marion were vocal supporters in the stands if their children or grandchildren were playing. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Marjorie Huff Reed and Jean Huff Pacha; and her husband, Marion, on April 2, 2009. She is survived by her children, Gary (Connie) Musil of Frankfort, KS; Greg (Barb Head) Musil of Overland Park, KS; and Tami Musil of Raytown, MO; her grandchildren, who were the light of her life until her great-grandchildren came along, Adam (Cassidy) Musil, Carly (Clayton) Hill, Taylor (Sheila) Musil, Elizabeth (Chase Bryan) Musil and Madeline (Ryan) Tarry; and her great-grandchildren, Dason, Kylar and Braxton Hill and Chase, Blair, Hayes and Adlee Ruth Musil. A memorial fund has been established to benefit the Frankfort United Methodist Church and Frankfort Community Care Home. Contributions may be left with the family or Padden Funeral Chapel.
