I had the pleasure of working with Miriam at the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital on many infection control initiatives. I’m at a loss that she is no longer with us and will miss her terribly. Miriam, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. We will continue the good work that you started. Our organization and our Veterans have lost someone truly special.

We are so sad for the loss of such an outstanding and kind person. But we also know that our Lord has not only received a new Angel but a leader that has certainly made Heaven a much better place. We were so privileged to have worked with Miriam for so many years at Haley. Miriam was so bright and one of her best attributes was how she could make people understand our purpose at the hospital and that no matter what we each thought at the end of the meetings we always left in agreement.
Our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Ruisz family.
No doubt Heaven is “bug free” now.

I'd like to remember Miriam for her unrelenting commitment to our Veteran population at James Haley VHA. I had the honor of working with Miriam for 10 years while she always supported my infection control prevention projects for surgical patients throughout the years. Miriam always shared a positive attitude and a most recognizable Carolina accent that lit up a room. Always positive and kind words for everyone she collaborated with during her career. I will truly miss her. Sending hope and prayers to her family, Connie Garrett

Miriam and I became supervisors at the same time and shared those week-long VA supervisor classes together. I was the supervisor of Microbiology from 2007 through 2016 and we always worked very well together during that time. She was a sweet and awesome person as well as a great co-worker. It is strange that I was just thinking about e-mailing her last week to find out when she was going to retire. I am glad that y'all lived by the water, for she told me that she loved going home after work.
I have no words for what has suddenly occurred, other than, I am truly sorry for your loss and may Miriam be in God's Grace forever.
With sadness and respect,
Narla Fries
