May "Aunt Ruthie" be enjoying the fullness of life and may all who knew and loved her be comforted. Trusting in God's faithfulness to His promises, imagine her delight in seeing her Lord face-to-face and being reunited with her loved ones. "How great Thou art!"

I knew Ruth since the 70's, in an organization called the ACCW. She was a very religious lady, plus funny. We had many good times together. She will be missed! LOVE
