Subject

Rutz, Virginia May Rhinehart (1916-2002)

Description

Virginia May Rhinehart Rutz as a baby.

Virginia was the daughter of George Rolle Rhinehart (1874-1945) and Alberta “Bertie” Mae (Carrier) Rhinehart.

She married Lewis Henry Rutz (1911-1991) in 1937 in Harrisville. At that time, he was a “meat clerk” in Washington D.C., and living on T Street, N.E.

A couple of years later, the 1940 census found the couple living in Washington D.C. and working. Lewis was a meter reader for a public utility while Virginia worked as a cashier in a department store. Their first son, Gordon R. Rutz, was born in Washington.

At some point, the growing family moved back to Shenandoah County and by 1950, they lived in the Stonewall District where Lewis worked in a grocery store. Virginia’s mother, Bertie, also lived with them for a time. By then, they had two additional children, Linda Joan and Gary. An additional daughter, Carole Jean, was born later.
