So many good memories of riding to Vo Tech with Ruth. Always a joy to be with and such amusing stories. May she plant her flowers in heaven.

Tim, Susie, and Anne

I am very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a good friend to all and an better mother, who loved her family.

May she rest in everlasting peace and may the good Lord comfort those she leaves behind.
