Jeez, the dead keep coming so fast we can’t keep up. But Ruth M Siems couldn’t have chosen a more apt time to pass on, though, with Thanksgiving nipping at her 74-year-old heels. Back in 1975, it seems Siems was listed as a main inventor on the patent for Kraft Foods’ now-classic Stove Top stuffing. It’s said that 60 million boxes of the stuff(ing) are sold at Thanksgiving, mostly to trailer folk. Siems died from a heart attack at her home in NewBurgh, Indiana. It’s not known whether she left instructions for her body to be stuffed.
