Gayre my heart goes out to you my friend. We have all known each other over a lifetime and the memory of you always being there for Ross I wish I could repay today. Ruthie was certainly a gem and kept you on your toes.

Ruthie had her father's wonderful laugh and her mother's amazing musical talent. My mother, Eleanor Schiavo Russell, used to call her Diamond Lil because of the fun she had wearing accessories. I miss her.

I was so sad to hear about Ruth's passing. I worked with her for many, many years at First American Title. She was kind, fun to talk to, very knowledgeable and I always looked forward to seeing what she wore to work everyday because she was well dressed from head to toe and everything matched! She was a lovely lady.

I worked with Ruth at First American Title i Flagstaff from 1983 to 1990. She was one of my favorites there. So sorry to hear this news.
