I met Ruthie at the Mount Zion Baptist Church in Seattle, Washington when we joined church the same day in the year 2012. Ruthie loved to go down to Ivar's acres and clams to get fish and chips and clam chowder. We especially had one fun Christmas shopping day struggling to fit a huge tree in my car for my mother who also passed away 2 years after I met Ruthie. Ruthie was my prayer partner my confidante and dear friend. I will miss her alot.

Ruthy was definitely one of God's earthly angels and I know she had a glorious reunion upon her return to her heavenly home. It was a privilege and honor to have had her as a friend and sister in Christ. She was an excellent caregiver to my mother, Thelma and I feel God blessed all of us by this
friendship. A true Christian woman who loved life, family and friends. She will be missed but know that we will be together again in heaven.
God's peace and grace be with her family.
Love, prayers and hugs

Oh Ruthy!! How I could never keep up with you. I was honored to be the Seattle friend whom Stephanie would leave as a helpful contact for Ruthy, when Stephanie & Erin were out of town.
Fool Me Once..., Fool Me Twice..., heck, I cannot even recall how many times Ruthy got the last laugh on me.
Despite being the butt of so many of her pranks, I always felt her love and kind caring heart. Ruthy’s love and well wishes were often shared with me through speaker phone, of the routine, morning calls with Stephanie, as I would walk in and start my work day. On more than one occasion I was the recipient of a crisp $2 dollar bill for picking her up from a Dr appointment and escorting her and Stephanie home, she would not take a ‘no thank you’for an answer. And one of my favorite acts of generosity was when my bday fell on Easter a few years ago and Ruthy lended a portion of her wonderful hat collection for an Easter bday gathering. The pictures of many of my dearly beloved friends, with Ruthy’s hats atop their heads, will bring a smile to my face and warm my heart for years to come!
I feel so lucky to have had the time I had with Ruthy and I am especially grateful for one of her greatest contributions to my life, her daughter Stephanie, who 100% carries Ruthy’s spirit and love for those around her.
My thoughts and love to all of those who’s hearts are affected by Ruthy’s departure from this Earthly time. ❤️

Miss Ruthy was beloved at Mount Zion. She attended senior ministry luncheons dressed to the hilt. After she left Seattle, she continued to receive The Zionews and keep up with her church family. We will all miss her. A plaque in her honor will be ordered and placed on our Memorial Board for future generations.

I couldn't ask for a more loving Mother-in-law than Ruthie Jean. She was a loving mother and Grandmother. There was always joy in her home
