The brightest light in the universe. Ruth was the kindest person I've ever met. Her guidance and friendship is one my most treasured gifts. Rest in peace, my dearest friend.

Ruth was a friend to everyone at YCDS. I missed her every day since she retired. There is a whole in
the universe with Ruth gone. There are some people you meet who changed your life and made
you a better person, she was that for me.

Ruth was my husband Brian's cousin. She was a grand lady, who was beloved by all her family, especially her nephews, their wives, and sons. She will be greatly missed.

I went to YCDS for all of my school years. From first grade until graduation one thing remained constant, Mrs Winter. She kept things running efficiently and dealt with the kids with kindness. She touched a lot of lives.
