VALA, Ruth N., 92, passed away peacefully on September 12, 2022, with her sister Naomi by her side. Ruth is survived by her sisters, Martha Hiles of Cliff Wood Beach and Naomi Callaghan of Kearny. Preceded in death by her siblings, Flavian Vala, Rose Verile, Joseph Vala, Anna Marshall, and Sam Vala; also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins whom she loved dearly. Throughout her life, Ruth touched the hearts of many and will be missed by all. Ruth worked in New York City for many years as an administrative assistant in the garment district.
