Hi- I have just found this obituary, hope someone in the family reads it and gets back to me. My name is Lonee Hoffman (Valencia). I have spent years trying to find the most important teacher in my life, Ruth Ann Miller. From this picture, I think this may be your beloved mom, wife. The Ruth Miller I am looking for came from MI to Ca for one year (her first year) of teaching with her friend, Ruth Voelker. She taught 5th grade at Niles Elementary School, Fremont, CA. I lived on a ranch and was dropped off early every day. Miss Miller and I became very close. She was like an older, very beautiful sister. we stayed in touch for quite awhile, writing letters until I was in high school. She came up to the ranch and rode horses, had dinner, and I remember being so surprised to watch her drink a beer. I cared very much for her. She was so incredible. Beautiful inside and out. Reading this notice, has brought tears to my eyes because I really think that this is the beloved lady I have been looking for. Just had to reach out, hope someone sees this. It sounds like she had a wonderful life, filled with great people to love. The Ruth I'm looking for, also was an airlines stewardess for awhile, I think. If this is not the right person, I am so sorry to intrude into your private memories, but if this is my Ruth, hope you will get back to me. lonee.hoffman@oracle.com, or Lonee Hoffman (facebook)

For Ruth's family- You don't know me, but I feel as though I know you from the Christmas letters. I met Ruth in teaching in Walled Lake, MI in 1965. We both boarded with the same lady, a fellow teacher, who took in other teachers on a temporary basis. We were both filling out the end of a year for 2 different teachers. Ruth went home to Flint every weekend, but I was from KY, a long way from home and knew no one but my fellow teachers and landlady. Ruth took me home with her on 2 occasions and introduced me to her neighbor whom I would marry the next year. We have been married for 47 years. She also taught me to play chess. I too became a quilter upon my retirement from teaching. I am so saddened to learn of Ruth Ann's death, and know that she will live on through you, her beloved husband, children, and grandchildren.
