Mary RUTH Page is my mother. Dad and Mom taught me how to respect people. They instilled great values and raised me to know right from wrong. Mom was always there. She loved her animals. She loved to fish and camp.. She took us to the park to fish. First rule of fishing was to bait your own hook! I have so many great memories that I will treasure forever.. Mom, I will miss you until we meet again! Keep Pam in line now! I love you more!

My Mamaw Ruth means everything to me. I am so honored to be a “Ruth” and I will forever miss you calling me “Amanda Ruth” whenever we would talk. Her heart was so large and full of kindness, love, and sarcasm! You were always there for me to talk to and give me big warm hugs and supported everything I did. We shared a love for animals, bingo, and thrift store shopping. One of my favorite memories is when Harlie and I were children staying with you and papaw and there were tornado warnings. The power went out and we were scared BUT you guys lit candles on the coffee table and we roasted marshmallows all night long and told silly stories. There is not enough room on this to express my love for you. I love you more Mamaw Ruth!

Oh my mamaw, my heart. Where do I even begin? I got to spend 30 years of my life with you being my biggest fan, supporter, and most loving mamaw. I remember when you were humane officer in darke county, I loved going on runs with you and watch you do what you loved. Your love for animals was inspiring. I spent 13 years playing softball and not only did you make every game you made every practice rooting me on and pushing me to do my best. Playing cards was another favorite. We always played peanuts. I will forever miss you mamaw. As you would always say, I love you more!!!
Love, Harlie

Mamaw was like a mom to me she was always there for me no matter what she loved fishing and camping I will never forget going to dialysis with her and just looking through the window and seeing her smile at me as I'm standing there her and I'd just laugh and I'd sit there and wait till she got out and when she came out and I'd walk up to get her and help her she'd grab my arm and tell the nurses I was her boy and she'd just smile big at me I will always also remember going out to borderline and she'd just sing her heart out to the songs that came on the speakers no matter if it was a live band or even just a CD she'd always sing her heart out and I loved sitting beside her and singing with her she was like a mom to me every time I said I love you mamaw she'd say I love you more and she'd just smile at me so I love you alot mamaw I'll see you when its my time love ya
