Ruth gave me the first bit of confidence I ever had. She was an amazing woman, teacher and human being who will be well remembered by all who knew her. My sympathy to Cindy and all the family.

To Ruth's family---we were sorry to learn of Ruth's passing. She holds a special place in our hearts. Mike had her as his 6th grade teacher. My 1sti teaching job was at Marissa Grade School where I taught 8th grade Language Arts. Ruth was so helpful & kind to me. I fondly read her booklets of poetry that she gave me. We had a nice visit with her in May 2015. We'll treasure our memories of Ruth.

To this day, Someone will ask " who was your favorite teacher?" I always reply, Mrs Ruth Erb. She was my Mothers teacher too!

Because of Ruth Erb, I will always know my verbs of being: Am, Is, Are, Was ,Were. I also sometimes hum the words to "oh won't you come home, Bill Bailey."

Cindy, David and I wish to extend our sympathies to you and your family. Your mother and David taught together at Marissa Grade School from 1968-1973. I believe he may have been your teacher in 7th or 8th grade. Ruth was truly one of a kind. I know you will miss her.
Sincerely,
David and Anna Newell
