Ruth M. Albrecht, 87, of Keyport, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, April 1 at Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel, just 18 days shy of her 88th birthday. She was born Ruth M. Unkel on April 19, 1928 in Queens, New York, where she grew up. On June 6, 1948, Ruth and her husband, John, were married and began their life together.

She was predeceased by her parents, William and Catherine (Klersy) Unkel; her beloved husband, John Joseph Albrecht Sr.; her brother, William Unkel; and her brothers-in-law, Paul Davis and William Greene Sr.
