  1. Ruth was a second Mom to me all through
    my college years and beyond. She was always so warm and welcoming. She had a smile that lit up a room and the most sparkling blue eyes. I am so glad I was able to go out to lunch with her and see her at Rene’s birthday celebration just a few weeks ago. She was a wonderful person and I’m glad she was in my life for 45 years. She will be missed. Love to all of you, Marg
