Ruth Elizabeth Gorney, 92, of Manlius, N.Y., formerly of Orchard Park, N.Y., passed away Friday, February 5, 2021 at Community Memorial Hospital in Hamilton with her grandchildren, April and David by her side.

Ruth enjoyed many leisure hours knitting and one of her most favorite hobbies was collecting memorabilia from QVC. Most recently, a resident of Brookdale Manlius, Ruth enjoyed time spent with her new friends having lively conversations and many laughs.
