Ruth Elaine Hylland was born on April 17, 1930 in Des Moines, Iowa, the youngest child of Edvin and Rose (Flugum) Jacobson. She was baptized and confirmed at the Bethany Lutheran Church in Thompson, Iowa and was a graduate of Thompson high school.

On November 20, 1948, Ruth was united in marriage to Paul Andrew Hylland in Scarville, Iowa. They were members of the Center Evangelical Lutheran Synod Church since their marriage. On October 5, 1949 they welcomed a son, Charles Edward. The couple lived on Paul’s parents’ farm place until 1955 when they purchased a farm west of Scarville, Iowa where they remained for the rest of their years. Ruth worked at Deluxe in Lake Mills, Iowa and helped out on the farm.

After retirement Ruth spent many years traveling near and far with Paul; collecting plates as souvenirs from each state they visited. They also retained a vacation spot in Mission, Texas for many years where they would go to avoid the frigid Iowa winters. Ruth loved being able to visit all of their friends and the many hours spent playing cards and bingo.

Family meant the world to Ruth; especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She saved every picture, letter and drawing throughout the years and cherished the time she was able to spend with them. Ruth was an avid gardener, appreciated polka music, enjoyed cooking large meals and was very doting. She also appreciated the companionship of her dog Tiko who followed her everywhere.

Ruth is survived by her daughter-in-law Kathy (Bausch) Hylland of Scarville, IA; three grandchildren, Amber and her husband, Stephen Fry of Lake Mills, IA; Stacy and her husband, Jonathan Salyers of Glenwood, IA and Paul Nels Hylland of Lake Mills, IA; three great grandchildren, Natalie, Allison and Heidi Salyers of Glenwood, IA; a sister, Mavis Klein of Iowa Falls, IA; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her son; husband; parents; and brother, Edwin Jacobson.
