I loved her. She would take up for me when everyone was being mean to me.

Mrs. Ruth was one of the most honest and genuine people I've ever known. She lived at the end of my road growing up, so I've known her for 38 years! She sewed me (multiple) dresses, made me (begrudgingly) clean my plate and treated me like her own child. She truly was a special angel here on earth. Enjoy Heaven...

I worked with Ms. Ruth for a couple of years driving the school bus. She will be deeply missed. She had such a sweet spirit to her and was always looking out for everyone. She left a imprint on many people.
