Ruth Herrink remembered by county leaders

Ruth Herrink was remembered by King George leaders last week.

Condolences were expressed by several members of the King George Board of Supervisors at their meeting last week on Oct. 15, three days after the death of The Journal’s editor and publisher who died Saturday, Oct. 12 at the age of 87.

Supervisor Joe Grzeika marked her passing and provided a remembrance.

Grzeika said, “This past week, we lost one of the stalwarts in our community. She was a woman who, if you knew her, you knew she had an opinion. And she let you know what it was.”
He added, “Ruth Herrink, who led The Journal as its editor for three decades, she certainly will
be missed.”

Grzeika added, “She was involved in all that went on in the background and foreground of all that went on in King George County. And was someone from whom you could definitely always get an opinion on any topic. She will be missed.”

Supervisor Ruby Brabo read from her prepared remarks, saying, “The passing of Ruth Herrink this past week was a shock to many in the community.”

She added, “While Ruth and I did not always agree, I enjoyed our conversations. She definitely has left a mark on the community and will be remembered.”

Supervisor John LoBuglio stated, “My sympathy goes out to Ruth Herrink’s family on their loss.” LoBuglio added, “She was a big community leader.”

Supervisor Chairman Dale Sisson stated, “I also want to express my condolences to the family of Ruth Herrink.”

He added, “I’ve known Ruth and Jessica for years, and their entire family, and appreciate all that they’ve done.”
