The only surviving daughter of Babe Ruth dies

Henderson (Nevada, USA) .- The last surviving daughter of the Hall of Famer Babe Ruth, Julia Ruth Stevens, died on Saturday at the age of 102, her family reported.
He added that Stevens died Saturday morning in an assisted residence in Henderson, Nevada, after a brief illness.

In a statement posted on Babe Ruth’s Facebook page, her family indicated that “Julia was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who lived a wonderful and fulfilling life during the 102 years she was with us.”

Sources close to the family indicate that Ruth Stevens had lost her sight, but that she was still lucid.

They indicate that Babe Ruth’s daughter regularly attended a club of book readers.

Stevens, who is the author of three books about her father, once said that “as long as there is baseball, dad’s name will always be mentioned, it was unique.”

He added that “my goal in life is to keep his name alive, he was a wonderful father, and I remember him that way and not as a baseball player.”
Stevens was adopted by Ruth shortly after the baseball player married his mother, Claire Hodgson, in 1929, when Julia was 12 years old.

Hodgson died in 1976. Julia was the oldest of two daughters adopted by Ruth. Dorothy Ruth Pirone, who was Ruth’s daughter from a previous relationship, died in 1989 at age 67. (EFE)
