My earliest memory of Aunt Ruth was visiting her in her neat upstairs apartment and playing
with the closet full of toys she kept for her nieces and nephews.
She also had the most beautiful Christmas trees
adorned with ornaments she’d collected from all over the world.
I think of her often every time I look at the statue of the Blessed Virgin she gave me for my
First Communion.
Rest In Peace now, Aunt Ruth.

If I looked up the meaning of strength in the dictionary, I would expect to see Ruth’s picture. She was such a strong woman, even at 99 years old. She was a good friend to my Mom when they lived down the hall from each other. I wish “Aunt” Ruth eternal peace, Janet Luntz
