Ruth (Blaisdell) Preble of Wilmington passed away at Care One at Wilmington on Friday, Oct. 7 at the age of 100.
Born in Woburn, she was the daughter of the late George and Marie (Sundvall) Blaisdell. She was the beloved wife of Kenneth Preble who passed away in 1970.

Ruth’s family would like to send their sincere gratitude to the staff at Care One who took such good care of her, especially these last few years with Covid restrictions.
