Ruth DeYoung Kohler II Obituary

A true force of nature and lifetime supporter of the arts, Ruth founded Kohler Foundation's preservation program and was a member of Kohler Foundation for many years and past president (1999-2006). Everyone at the Foundation will miss her laughter, compassion and creativity but continue to honor her with the preservation of art environments, folk architecture, and collections by self-taught artists.
