It was a privilege to meet Ruth and spend time with her off and on through the years. Her "nurse stories" entertained us "young" nurses on many dinner occasions! She had a zest for life and a beautiful smile, and I know that heaven has gained another angel! Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Know that she touched many people throughout her lifetime in a such a positive and delightful manner!

She was a loving Step Mother from the first time we met her. She welcomed us into her home and family. We will miss you Ruth.

I worked with Ruth at the hospital for many years. She was a very smart woman and nurse. After we retired I would see her at different church functions, and Church Women United Celebrations. She will be remembered by many. My thoughts and prayers to her family.

Ruh and I rode to many Franklin District Executive Committee meetings over the years. Always enjoyed her company and the many years of work in United Methodist Women.
