We are also sorry to hear about Ruth. We really enjoyed when she and John would visit. They are both in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear this. I remember her when she lived in the Hollow and we all played together a lot. We kept in touch off and on through the years. May she be resting in peace now and may those she left behind be consoled in their grief. Glen David

WE WILL ALWAYS remember the wonderful family holiday dinners at Aunt Ruth's and Uncle John's. Her prayers before dinner won't be forgotten. She loved having family around. Enjoyed hearing her laugh and tell stories. So glad I had her as a positive Christian role model. Now she is with Jesus and our family.

Aunt Ruthie has a heart of gold and loved her family dearly. She always had a tear of Love and concern for others. Some the best days of my adult life was visits to farm to and the hospitality of aunt Ruth and uncle john. She will be missed.
