Our family has lost one of its brightest stars with Ruth's passing. She was always a lovely lady and a lot of fun to be with particularly at the first cousins reunions with her quick wit and pleasant demeanor. RIP dear Ruth we will miss you!

Ruth was a friend you could count on to always stay calm and be there when needed. We enjoyed much fellowship as we worked together on many committees for Christian Women's Club. Sympathy to all the family.

I was fortunate enough to get to know Ruth the last two years of her life. She was my hero in every way, and I will carry her loving memory with me the rest of my life.
