We send our condolences to Ruth's family. Rob, her partner for many years in Kiana, was my Uncle. He loved your mom and respected her wit, business acumen, and knowledge! She had a reputation for bringing light everywhere she went!

About 12 years ago I was at the Ted Stevens International Airport to pick up my sister. Ruth, who I did not know, was in need of a ride to Adventure 600. I offered to drive her home and we had a wonderful conversation during the drive. We exchanged addresses, as people do, but we actually wrote one another for several years. And also as people do we no longer kept in touch. The thing that I remember was that this was a smart, self sufficient woman with a quit wit who I am thankful to have had the pleasure to converse with, she seemed to understand me right away and though our encounter was brief, she had a positive impact on my life. I send my best wishes to her family and envy them for having known her better. Ruth was a rare treasure. Best, Terri Collins

Wanni and I were so saddened by Ruth's untimely death. She had been a good friend for more than 40 years. In addition to her friendship, we have always recognized and appreciated her enthusiasm for understanding her own culture and sharing her knowledge with us. What a loss to her community!

So sorry to hear of the passing of Ruth Blankenship Sandvik. I will miss talking to her on the phone about Tom Baldwin's family and many other subjects. I hope she shared the Blankenship Family Tree I researched for her a few years ago for Christmas with all her children. She spoke of you all frequently during our conversations. She was a sweetheart. Always thoughtful and willing to help. I'm very grateful she answered my inquiry letter about the Tom Baldwin Family and was so willing to share what she remembered with me, a total stranger. And like so many others have written Ruth always remembered you once she knew you. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet her in person, but I'm glad I got to know her over the last few years. She was a very special person.

Rest In Peace Dear Ruth. You will be missed by many and in our thoughts and prayer forever.
