Ruth Jackson passed away December 28, 2012. Her daughter, Barbara Huntington, and son, Bill Weeks, were by her side. She was born May 10, 1919, in Durango, CO. Her mother, Katherine F. Looney, taught on various Native American reservations.
Sometimes known as the Rose of Ramona (she had over 800 rose bushes), Ruth loved people, animals, gardening and dancing with hubby Dick Jackson who passed three years ago. She was a graduate of the University of New Mexico and later earned her MA in English literature doing her thesis on Thomas Hardy. Last January, the Ramona Garden Club pruned her roses for her.
She will be greatly missed.
