Gail/Sharon/Janice: You all know how much I loved your Mom. I’m so glad I got to have tea with her one last time on my last visit to Rochester. Josh sends his love too. He’s all grown up now. I just think how proud Ruth would be and how she would just not believe what a great young man he has grown to be.
If any of you need anything, you know how to reach us. God Bless and keep you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Remember , your mom will always be with you.
Love you Always
We got to know Ruth, when we first came to Hope Church. She and Kathy Holland were quite a team together. Have many fond memories of Ruth at various women’s functions, and I still have a dish she gave me at a Christmas exchange along with a recipe. Ruth was a delight, we were blessed to have known her.

What a treasure Ruth’s family has lost at her passing. I was so lucky to have called Ruth friend for so many years. I have many fond memories of coffee in her kitchen. She never had a bad word to say about anyone and no one could possibly say one about her. Hers was a life well-lived. It was never the same without her beloved Danny and I know she is with him now which I hope is a comfort to all who knew her.
