Former Port Washington resident Ruth D. Trice was a calm woman whose personality had many people calling her “mom.”
    “She was very loving and caring,” her daughter Judy said. “She never complained about anything. She was happy with what life gave her.”
    Mrs. Trice died Sunday, Dec. 31, at her home in Dallas. She was 86.
    A native of Little Fork, Minn., she was born on Sept. 15, 1931, to Ernest and Louise Delack Rinehart.
    She graduated from high school in Anoka, Minn., before her family moved to Rib Lake, where she met Jack Trice.  The couple married in Rib Lake on Dec. 4, 1953.
    They lived for a time in Milwaukee before moving to Port Washington in the mid-1960s.
    After Mr. Trice died on Jan. 19, 1994, Mrs. Trice moved to Dallas to be closer to her children.
    “Most of her life she spent raising her 11 children,” her daughter said. “She worked hard.”
    Mrs. Trice enjoyed traveling after her husband died, with her son Philip serving as her faithful travel companion.
    “They went everywhere she wanted, from Alaska to Australia, from Hawaii to France,” her daughter said, adding that other family members occasionally accompanied them.
    Mrs. Trice was a spiritual woman who drew her strength from her faith, her daughter said.
    Her mother was known for her contagious laughter, she said.
    Mrs. Trice is survived by her children Mark (Mary) and Charles, both of Port Washington, Philip, Judy and Patricia, all of Dallas, Thomas and John (Lisa), both of Random Lake, Jeffrey (Beverly) and Joyce (Joel), both of West Bend, Daniel (Elizabeth) of Waldo, Donald (Nicki) of Lewisville, Texas; 15 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
    She is further survived by her sisters Shirley Bartel of St Paul, Minn., Mary Skogquist of Elk River, Minn., and Ria Pierce of McGregor, Minn., and brother Ernest Rinehart of St Paul, Minn.
