My memory goes way back when the family lived in Levittown . Ruth would have me cracking up with things she would say. She was a lovely lady. Thanks for the fond memories when I was a child. My condolences to the Karen and the family

I have fond memories of Ruth yelling at the referees and all of the bumbs Mike, Jeff and I played against in any hockey game, Which there were many. Ruth and Paul never missed a game no matter what time of the day or late night. She loved hockey, her boys and me. What a wonderful Mom to all of us.

So many great memories but tailgating before the Bon Jovi concert is one of my favorites. Wine ,snacks, wine,socializing with everyone who walked by and more wine ! The joy Ruth shared was infectious,uplifting and wonderful..just like her.

Mrs. Gary was part of my growing-up years! I grew up with Jeff and Mike and spent many hours at their home, with always a sweet, warm welcome from Mrs. Gary! While I am sad to hear of her passing, she has quite a long, wonderful life to be celebrated. She will certainly be missed, but her spirit will live on through the memories of her family and friends. Much love to the Gary Family as they grieve their loss.
