Ruthann was a very dear friend of mine and I cherished her friendship very much. I am from Curwensville and graduated in 1957 and met Ruthann shortly after that. I live in Purcellville, Va. and my husband, Jim and I along with our daughter visited Ruthann in August, 2019 where she was living in Clearfield. I am so thankful that we went to see her. I send my condolences to her family and may God be with you at this time. May God Bless you, Love in Christ, Cathy Goodlin.

Dearest Andrea and Andy ~ Please accept our most sincere condolences. We are so very sorry for your loss. Ruthann was a sweet, caring lady who will be greatly missed by many. My father spoke so fondly of her (his cousin), and I was personally blessed to have made a greater connection with Ruthann these past couple years. May sweet memories help bring you peace each day. With love, Mary Ann Pearce and family

What a wonderful, caring loving woman with a heart of gold. She will definitely leave a huge void in the Ross family but will forever be in our hearts.
