Ruth was a wonderful woman. She loved to bake and nothing to do but you try her best cakes and cookies and it was hard to say" no thank you" about taking some home with you! She is going to be missed by all who knew her. My prayers go out to the family at this time. May God richly bless each and everyone of you!

Ruth was always like a mom to me when I was with or around her . She was always willing to help out. I just received a Christmas card from her last week. Shows there is no promise for tomorrow. I have missed her since she moved back to Texas. Prayers for the family
