Only yesterday did I learn of the passing of a very dedicated employee and friend. I wax sitting in the stands at my daughter’s soccer game around 1998 when another teammate parent offered. “I have this great woman working part time for me who would be an excellent pickup for your staff at Hibernia! “ And shortly thereafter, Ruthanne became an integral part of my HMDA crew. ever dedicated and selfless in her pursuit of excellence with me for the next 17 years.
I was blessed to have known her and while personally saddened by her early passing, know that she is now resting peacefully in the hereafter.

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Ruthanne Doerfler. I've known her for a very long time as a co-member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Some of our children were in Confirmation together. May many joyful memories bring comfort to her family. Our Lord's promises are now fulfilled in her life.
In Sympathy,
