Ruth leaves her daughters, Donna Sheiber and her husband, Les, of Windsor, and Kathie Gonzales and her husband, Frank, of Clearwater, FL; her very special grandchildren, Rick Sheiber and his girlfriend, Amy Groszyk, and Lindsey Atkins and her husband, William III; and the joys of her life, her two great grandsons, William Atkins IV and Graham Theodore Atkins. She also leaves a very special cousin, Clara; her friend, Martha; and nieces and nephews.
