RUTH WERNER, 84, of Vineland, passed away on Dec. 25. Wife of 66 years of the late Irving Zimmerman Werner. Mother of Barbara, Judy and Kenny. Also survived by her seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Mrs. Werner was born in Dlugoshodla, Poland to Kalman and Enya Budyshewitz. Prior to her birth, her father immigrated to the United States via South America in order to set up a new life for his young family and to bring them over shortly thereafter. Those plans were thwarted with the changing political environment in Europe and with the rise of Hitler. World War II and the oppression of the Jews in Europe during the Holocaust prevented Ruth and her mother from leaving Europe until just before her 18th birthday. She survived the Holocaust alongside her mother and she first met her father as the family reunited when they stepped off the boat in New York Harbor in 1948. As a young immigrant in New York’s Lower East Side, Ruth was living among thousands who survived the atrocities of the Nazi regime and who were trying to make better lives for themselves. At night school, she met another young Holocaust survivor, Irving Zimmerman Werner, who was working as a tailor of fine men’s clothing. Mr. Werner immigrated to the United States in 1947 with his two surviving brothers, after the Nazis sent him to a forced labor camp in Siberia, Russia. They married and moved to Vineland and purchased a chicken farm. Eventually they started a successful women’s clothing business together and they operated stores in Berlin, Pennsauken, and Vineland NJ, until their retirement. RONE FUNERAL SERVICE.
