So sorry to learn of Ruthie’s passing. She was in our carpool from first grade thru high school. I remember her always smiling, always cheerful. My deepest sympathies to the family.

Ruth was so much fun to be around. She lit up the room wherever she was. She was so active and helpful in so many ways at The Cannonball House, volunteering and supporting us. In particular we will miss those delicious dishes she contributed to our annual Beards, Bourbon & BBQ event. RIP sweet Ruth. You will be deeply missed. Heartfelt condolences go out to her precious family.

We haven't visited with Ruthie (as we knew her) in a long time. She was always bright and beautiful. Tom, we are very sorry for your loss.

I really enjoyed getting to know Ruth over the years. She was such a strong and unique individual. Her posts on Facebook were so often entertaining. And the grapes she brought to Beards, Bourbon and BBQ are legendary. So sorry for her loss

I worked with Ruth several years ago at Star Choices and we kept in touch for many years! She was that kind of friend. From the moment I met her, we instantly bonded and I considered her a close friend even though we were miles apart! She touched so many lives with her work, her sense of humor, her little anecdotes and stories, her love for her associates and of course her family! She will truly be missed but I know her legacy and the blessing of her friendship will live on forever! Thank you for blessing us with so many of your wonderful attributes and we will remember you fondly! Rest In Peace, my friend. You were a warrior! ❤️😇
