Ruth was an amazing woman. I always enjoyed spending time with her during our yearly meetings. She was always a delight to be around. Her kids and grandkids meant the absolute world to her. She will be truly missed!

It's a wonderful thing when a simple business relationship turns into a loving friendship and feeling of family. That was me and Ruth. We both loved to laugh and I think that is why we became close so fast. I am so thankful that I was there for her during the challenges late in her life and so thankful to have her in my life. She was a very special person and although sad to no longer be able to have her here, I know God will take great care of her, Hey Ruth, careful with those wings!

The life in her personality, in her laugh, and in her cooking will forever carry its place in my heart.
I remember the bursts of laughter that would explode from my father (Delbert) when he would be talking with Aunt Ruth on the phone.
I’m sure they’re having a time catching up now.

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth’s passing. She was always so kind and thoughtful, sewing handmade gifts when the girls were little. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and may she Rest In Peace now. ✝️

My heart is breaking, but at the same time it is filled with joy as a beautiful lady, who was like the sister I never had, has gone to be with her Savior and be united again with her dear Earl and Simone. We will miss you sweet one, but we will see you once again in the hereafter. We now have another Guardian Angel watching over us...thank you for all the wonderful memories of times shared!
