My mother, Gertrude Rose, was Ruthie's big sister. They not only loved each other but looked like twins. When Gert lived to be 100, Ruthie told me that it would be time for the two to join Mabel and Chick so the Richardson girls could all laugh and tell jokes. We will miss you Ruthie. But your sisters will welcome your joy and love.

I had the privilege of taking Holy Communion to Ruth every week for 5 years & I enjoyed spending time with her. She was a real joy to talk to, she was so kind, gentle & considerate. I loved her & will miss her. My thoughts & prayers are with your family.

I will always treasure my memories of Ruthie. She was a great friend and condo neighbor. We "Condo Ladies" had such a fun time going to the casino, doing lunch, shopping and having our monthly Po keno Parties, in fact there are just too many special times to list. I am so thankful to have had Ruth as a dear friend not just to me but also to my Mom and family.
