I feel so blessed to have known Ruth. She and I became friends after her husband Wilbur passed away. I would take Ruth shopping and we always had such a good time together. She loved the Lord and loved to sing His praises! I will miss her and she will always be in my heart. Sending condolences to her brother Paul, daughter Trish and all the family. You will be in my prayers.
I knew Ruth while she was at Riverwalk Communities. She was always so kind to me. She always had candy to share and then some!!!!!!!! Her love of Mickey Mouse and all things related to Mickey was well known at the facility. I am so sorry to hear of her death and send my sympathies to her family.
