Ruthie was one of the sweetest employees at OSF.She always had a amile and terrific work attitude and was a very hard worker. I enjoyed seeing Ruthie when she was a patient,but it broke my heart that she couldn't remember any of her coworkers and friends. God Bless you Ruthie-you'll always be in my heart.

It was a pleasure to know Ruth for only a short while. She always made me laugh and brightened my day during a trip to the doctor's office. I was her transport van driver over the past year and will always remember her laugh and cheerfulness. Rest in Peace Ruth.....
