Ruth was sweet, funny, feisty, and clever! She kept the staff and children at Fairborn Preschool on our toes and rolling with laughter. Her faith in the Lord and her love for friends and family were evident in her words and actions. Ruth was delightful and I will miss her until I see her again in heaven.
