Obituary of Ruth O. Forin

Ruth Forin, 83, of Olyphant died Friday evening at Carbondale Nursing Home.  She was predeceased by her husband Elias Forin, who passed away in June of 2018.

Born in Brooklyn, she was the daughter of the late Herman and Jean Fier Blumenthal.  Having relocated to NEPA in 1972, she and Elias operated a number of local businesses, the most well-known of which was Reel (later Real) Deal, a video rental store in Eynon. Ruth thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her customers, many of whom became dear friends over the years, and she looked forward to their visits.

She is survived by her children Laurence Forin and wife Coby, Staten Island, NY and Karen Connors, Perth, Western Australia.

Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Margotta Funeral Homes.
