Oh no, oh no, oh no, I just hate this! Ruthie was such a bright spirit no matter what day or time it was. Just tried to contact her a couple weeks ago, not knowing she was this sick. Go to the reward you have surely earned, Ruthie! You were a good friend to all.

Ruth Ann, was a beautiful soul! She was a good family friend and classmate. Became good friends at Roy Miller High School and graduated in the Class of '71. Since that time Ruth Ann has been a corner stone in planning and organizing the many class reunions we have had since then.
Ruth Ann will be missed and can only take comfort in knowing she is with the Lord!!

I can't believe you are gone, my friend but knowing you are in Heaven and no longer suffering is a great comfort. I miss our phone calls at all crazy hours of the night just because we couldn't sleep..and yes even our discussions about politics - tho we were on opposite sides of the aisle so to speak! Until we meet again..Love you Always, Robin
