Ruth Ann (Kurtz) Mitchell, 40, of Stuart passed away July 14, 2022, in Stuart. A Celebration of Life service will be held 2:00 P.M. Saturday, July 23, 2022, at 207 7th Street, Adair, Iowa 50002.

Ruth was born July 30, 1981, in Kansas City to Glen Harold and Denise Delore (Templeman) Kurtz. Growing up the family lived in Marysville, Kearney, and Holt Missouri before moving to Audubon where she graduated with the class of 2000. After graduating, Ruth attended Hamilton College to become a medical assistant in Des Moines. She joined the Army National Guard out of Audubon and was active for 7 years before being discharged. She was united in marriage to Donavan Mitchell in February of 2000 and together they became the proud parents of four children, Alexander, Ethan, Ruby, and Sarah. They made their home in Dexter. Ruth worked at Walmart in Des Moines for 20 plus years as a customer service manager. She enjoyed photography, art of all kinds especially drawing, reading, playing guitar, and studying massage therapy. She was a very genuine person and was always there for others when needed. She loved animals, but her focus in life was her children.

She is preceded in death by her grandfather, James Kurtz, father-in-law, Van Mitchell and one nephew, Samuel Kurtz.

Ruth leaves behind, her husband, Donavan Mitchell of Dexter, Iowa; children, Alexander, Ethan, Ruby and Sarah all of Dexter, Iowa; parents, Glen and Denise Kurtz of Earling, Iowa; siblings, Amy Perry of Kansas City, Kansas and Ronald Kurtz of Bondurant, Iowa; grandparents, Tess Kurtz of Buffalo, Missouri and Ron and Carol (Dwornicki) Templeman of Atlantic, Iowa and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends all of whom will miss her greatly.
