My sister...my friend....always thinking of everyone else, not herself. Loved her children and her grandchildren more than life.

My children thought the world of their Aunt Ruth....she was such a big part of our family. Always laughing and taking her famous pictures....memories we will always have.

I will miss you sister more than words can say. But I will have many memories of times we spent together or on the phone just talking. Joe will miss you too. You will always be his favorite!!! Pray for us sister..now that you are with the Lord....tell him to watch over all of us down here...Love you to the Moon and Back!!

Patrick, Kelley and Bryan,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a special lady and of course we all have such wonderful memories of all of our moms together. How lucky we all have been to grow up with all these wonderful and sometimes wacky women that we love so much!! I know that My mom’s heart will never be quite the same again without your Moms heart! What a blessing they have been to each other in this lifetime of friendship together. My heart breaks for all of you and my deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you in grieving this very sad loss. Much love to you all and your families! ❤️❤️❤️

Mrs. Cronin was such a great lady. She always treated me like family. I was at the Cronin/Karges houses all the time. I spent many holidays with them as well. I even spent a summer living with them. During the years I lived in the U.P., she was always one of my first stops when I came home. Plus I always knew I would be fed. I have so many great memories of Ruth and the Cronin family. Ruth, you will be missed.

Ruth was a very strong independent woman! More than that, She may have been the kindest person I have ever met! She went out of her way daily to help my mother, both with her car and with her inner strength. For this sacrifice and friendship My family will never forget her!! Rest In Peace Ruth!

Dear Cronin Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences at the passing of your Mom/Grandma. Ruth was a very devoted Catholic. The memory I have will always be her at morning Mass at St.Pio/St.A's. She was so very dedicated to her family. It was always a pleasure to see her when she visited my office at church. Know that I will keep all of you and Ruth in my prayers.
Eternal rest grant into her O Lord. May she rest in heavenly peace.
Jeanne Wineski - former Christian Service Coordinator St. A's - St. Pio

So saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a favorite Aunt. She was very gentle and kind.
I was one of the older grandchildren, so I did not know you kids that much, since I moved out of town.

May the peace of Jesus encompass you and your siblings to help you through this time.
