I've known Ruth for many years - going way back to Price Hill Nazarene Church. She and her sister, Helen, should have been twins, as they looked so much alike. Both ladies had such sweetness about them and were beautiful inside as well as out! It was a pleasure to know them.

Ruth's family is so blessed to be able to call her "mom," " grandma, " "aunt," etc. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. May God give each of you comfort, strength and peace during this sorrowful time. God Bless your entire family!

Ruth was a dear friend to me. She was kind, caring, generous, funny, loving and such a great listener. She loved her family so very much. I was blessed to have met her while working for the Sisters of Charity in Cincinnati. We became good friends and continued to be so after she moved to Louisville.
She will be missed by me and many others. My sympathies go out to all of her family and other friends.

My sympathies to Ruth's family. I worked with Ruth at the Sisters of Charity for many years. Along with others, we frequently had lunch together in the Motherhouse dining room. The group was called the "lunch bunch".

I got to know Ruth as a friend. She always talked about her family.

Doug, Cindy and Craig, sending prayers and love to all of you!
