Strauss, Ruth Ehrenkranz,67, died on April 17, 2015. Ruth was a very special person who spent much of her life as a
psychotherapist in the service of others. A beloved woman, she leaves behind a family in deep mourning, husband
Robert Strauss, daughters Leah and Jenny Strauss, sister Elaine Ehrenkranz Kaplan (Jerome), brother Dr. Howard Ehrenkranz (Jane),
nephews, niece, cousins, aunt and legions of friends, colleagues and patients. She was above all a lover of people devoted to
inspiring and improving lives. In every role in life she embraced, Ruth was brilliantly successful. A peerless wife, mother, sister, friend,
colleague and therapist, her deep generosity of spirit, wit, intelligence and wisdom dazzled all who had the great luck of entering her life.
The world is a far better place for her having walked through it, and a sadder, colder one for her having departed.
