Mrs. Ruth Hartstein
This is a story of a life of service, dedication and generosity. The Mission Endowment Fund Board is honoring Mrs. Ruth Hartstein by sharing her story of generosity and about using God-given talents for the good of others. This is How Grace Works!
Mrs Hartstein passed away in December of 2020. Early in 2021 when her estate was settled, the MEF was notified that Ruth had named this ministry as one of the beneficiaries of an investment that had passed to her upon her husband’s death. What a surprise and what a blessing! And what a witness of stewardship this gift has been! Her generosity, not only to the MEF, but also to her church, is definitely a story of HOW GRACE WORKS!
The MEF Board has established an Endowed Gift in the name of Ruth Hartstein. Not only did she give generously in her lifetime, but her generosity has continued after her life on earth has ended. The MEF is launching an initiative called, Legacy Partners Enduring Vision for Mission. To learn more about the many ways you can leave an end of life legacy gift, contact Linda Ness,
We want to share this story of dedication of an individual who gave her time, her skill as a CPA, her leadership in the formation of the MEF, and her generosity. We are grateful to Ruth for her gift and to the family for sharing her time and possessions to support the grant giving ministry of the MEF.
