Not sure what to say?

What a wonderful lady in all aspects of life. Not many like her that is for sure. Ruth will be forever in our hearts! Her North Conway neighbors on East Main. The Davisons

My Grandmother was one of my Best Friends. I hold so many fond memories close to my heart, Summers spent in Province Lake New Hampshire and skiing together. She was an amazing Grandmother and will forever be with me in Spirit. Her love and comfort were such an amazing blessing in my life!

Very, very sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. She was a true force of nature. So keen and engaging and so very alive, not to mention politically alert. I will always treasure my moments together with her as her priest during my tenure at St Paul's, Malden. May she rest in peace ... and rile up the court of heaven!

I am saddened to learn of Ruth's passing. Her life reads like an adventure novel, imbued with an indomitable spirit. She was young at heart and kind and solicitous when receiving visitors.

I will miss her stories. I hope that you find comfort in your memories of her long life, well lived and well loved.

I fondly remember her and Bruno hosting me and my daughters fora few ski trips, after we moved to Ohio. I have missed them both since we lost contact. but will remember their kindness and the good times for the rest of my life.

I remember she and her husband coming into leather loft to see Nancy when the arrived in Conway.All of the staff loved saying hello. She was such a beautiful, sweet lady. I so enjoyed our visits with both of them. I’m going back 30 years! Much love and comfort sent to the family. Heavenly thoughts. Holly Morgan

Ruth was a cousin by marriage and I remember her as a wonderful women who was a great conversationalist and a joy to be with. I spent many happy hours reminiscing with her while visiting her in Malden and at family get togethers at my fathers' and grandfathers'. She told me many stories about her friendship with my mother and it was a great comfort to me. I'll miss her tremendously.

Here's to a life well lived, filled with grace, beauty and love. The neighborhood will certainly miss you. Rest in peace.

Ruth Daforno was such a beautiful person inside and out. Nancy was my friend and Ruth was my friend’s mother and I knew Nancy and her parents through our church, St Paul’s. I’m saddened to learn of her passing, but happy that she could be in her own home. I love you, Nancy Hildebrant. I have wonderful memories of you and Susan and me riding around in your Volkswagon bug on $.50 of gas. I’m sorry for your loss. Hope we can reconnect.
