Dear Family of Ruth,
I was privileged to live right across the street
from Ruth since 1990. We shared many
moments together and they were always fun
and special. When she became house-bound,
I tried to visit each day. She was so kind and
generous and Interesting--it was always a
We shared many meals and holiday
celebrations. She baked WONDERFUL
cookies. I brought her special "Trail Mix"
cookies from St. Joe's---we both loved these.
I continued to visit her in Arbordale, and
we continued to share--it was an important
part of my life. I miss her.
My sympathy to all of you in your loss.
She was truly a very special person.

My condolences to the family. I knew Ruth about 6 years, from when I came into the Johnson family (Ben). We had fun weekly Sunday dinners at her house with Linda and Bob, and she was always very kind and interested in what was new in our lives. She loved our dog, Rudy, and was always so happy when we brought him with us. Her Christmas cookies are something I'll always think about and miss, they were delicious! And Ben and I both loved when we had homemade spaetzle. She was such a special lady and we'll forever hold her in our hearts.
