A beautiful heart grew tired and is now at rest. A few tears, many smiles and a lifetime of wonderful memories. We will miss you Aunt Ruth.

My deepest sympathy to all of Ruth's family. Your mother was one of the sweetest and caring people I have ever known. She will be missed by so many that she loved and helped along the way. Rest in peace, Ruth.
