MaryRuth was the kindest most giving person I’ve known. I met MaryRuth when I was 20 yrs old. I started a new job and MR took me under her wings. She taught me about work and life. She always had advice to give. She even bought me a bottle of champagne for my 21st birthday. She was one of a kind. She really made a difference in many lives RIP MaryRuth.
