LUDINGTON — Today, Monday, April 6, Ruth M. Frost is celebrating her 100th birthday. Ruth is a resident of Medilodge. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, her family is unable to celebrate with her in person, so they are holding a short vehicle parade instead at 3:30 p.m. Anyone who is driving in the area is invited to join the parade at 1000 E. Tinkham Ave.

Ruth Andersen was born on April 6, 1920 in Ludington. Her parents were Andrew and Ida Andersen. She graduated from Ludington High School in 1938. She met Linton Frost at a church gathering. He had recently moved to Ludington, in 1940, from Manistee. The two were married on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 20, 1941 in Ludington. The two raised two sons, Curt and Jim.

Ruth and Linton lived in Ludington their entire life. She spent most of her career working at Paulina Stearns Hospital and then Memorial Medical Center (now Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital), as the head of medical records. She retired in 1982.

Son Jim said his mother is a “blood and guts card player who used to play bridge five days a week into her late ‘90s. She loved to play just about any card game and would not be happy until she mastered the game,” he says.

Linton passed away on Dec. 12, 2002. The two had celebrated 61 years of marriage.

Ruth also has two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
