I met Ruth at a bbq this past summer at a friend's house. We had a great time and good conversation. She was a lovely, caring and compassionate person. I will miss her very much. May she rest in peace with the angels as she will be helping people in heaven.

My Aunt Linda was very good friends with Ruth, and I used to meet up with Ruth through my aunt. Ruth was a wonderful, special person, very pragmatic and optimistic, always moving forward. She lived a very rich life, helping others and also making herself happy. I always enjoyed any chance to talk to Ruth, she was really wonderful and I'm sure she blessed all those who knew her well. It's a sad loss, but I'm very happy that Ruth was able to do many of thing things she wanted to in life and lived such a rich life.

I have the pleasure of professionally working w Ruthie for many years @HUMC, and more recently ran into her while she herself was seeking medical assistance. She always had an uplifting spirit about her and genuinely cared..... in a world where we can be anything, be KIND. I believe Rurhie did just that. God bless her family and all those who will feel her absence from their lives.
