Ruth Hague (Eisenberg)

Ruth (Eisenberg) Hague, of Monroe, NJ died on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at St. Peters Hospital, New Brunswick, NJ 08901. She was 81.

She was the wife of the late Larry Carle and the late Douglas Hague, who, she is pictured with above.

Born in Jersey City, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Philip Eisenberg and Miriam Eisenberg.

Ruth was born and raised in New Jersey and loved being a "Jersey Girl". She graduated High School from Long Branch High School, received her undergraduate degree from Douglass College (now Rutgers-New Brunswick) and her Master’s Degree in Social Work from Rutgers University. Filled with a passion and desire to help others and armed with a strong education, Ruth worked throughout the state of New Jersey, focusing her skills and talents to better the lives of others. Smart, determined and committed to advocating for those in need, Ruth did all that she could to make things right.

Her service career was extensive and encompassed many different groups and organizations. She volunteered at adult day care facilities, served as a court advocate for Women Aware, worked with the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services and with Johnson and Johnson as a counselor for 17 years. Known as a "fixer", Ruth provided support and assistance, to those in tough situations fighting to make sure their rights were protected.

Ruth was not only a "force to reckon with" at work, she was born a competitor. Throughout her life, Ruth concentrated on her physical and mental health by regularly going to the gym, eating well and keeping her mind sharp by reading all she could. She participated in various book clubs and was a fierce duplicate bridge card player. She would play single bridge but much preferred the competition of duplicate bridge.

Ruth’s passing leaves a large void for many, but she will not be forgotten. She will long be remembered and admired for her social principals, loyal and numerous friendships, dedication to others and generous and giving spirit.

She will be missed by her son, Geoffrey Hague, stepdaughters Kathleen "Cassie" Hague and Leah Steppe and her husband Jack of Maryland, her half-brother David Gilbert and his wife Melissa, and their two children Olivia Gilbert and her fiancé, Brian Klett and Lillian Cechvala and her husband, James and their son, Martin, her two sisters Karen Sheingold and Jean Back and her husband John and her nephew, Vinnie Schoenfelder and his wife Cindy and their two sons, Eric and Connor. Her extended family and Geoffrey's brother and sister, Brent Hague, Ashley Hague and her husband Matt Gorzkowicz and their two children, Grace and Grant, Geoffrey's stepsister, Shannon Fitzgerald, and Lisa Carle who was like a daughter to her.

To honor her wishes, Ruth’s services and interment will be held privately by her family.
