Mary Ruth Redlin, age 98 of Armada, passed away peacefully on March 31, 2021.


Mary was born on November 1, 1922 to John and Mamie Lee Ella Hollis in Wayne, Tennessee. At an early age she lost her mother and was raised by her father who was helped by her grandmother and aunts. In school she did very well academically and in sports and played for the high school basketball team.  As a young woman she moved to Michigan. It was there where she met the love of her life, and future husband, Arthur A. Redlin. Mary and Arthur were married on July 28, 1947 in Wood, Ohio. Detroit is where they settled down and raised their daughter, Nancy. Mary was a loving mother, and was overjoyed when she became a grandmother and later on a great-grandmother. She enjoyed watching Tiger baseball games, gardening, baking and going for rides with her daughter. Mary will be forever remembered for her loving spirit and caring heart.
