Dear family members of Ruth~

I was deeply saddened to read about Ruth's passing in the newspaper.

I wanted to share with you all how wonderful Ruth was in helping me to obtain an interest-free loan for my last year of college. She arranged this for me through the American Baptist Women's group. This was an "angel gift" to me as I was the third and final child to be going to college and my parents were out of funds to be of much help to me. My mother, Hazel Englehart, shared this with Ruth (my mother knew her WELL through ABWA) and she was able to help me secure the loan. I will be eternally grateful for her intervention on my behalf. THAT is the type of woman she was. I saw her quite a few times over the years as I worked and was able to pay back the loan. I also attended her church several times with her.

Everyone in ABW thought the world of Ruth. She was a hard worker who was also so gracious and kind. She made one feel happy just to be around her.

I was so hoping to come to Ruth's service, but I was attending a funeral/Memorial service the same day for one of our family members.

May God give you Peace and Comfort as you deal with your loss.

With Christian love and sympathy,

Janet Englehart Schrader
