So sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. What a Great lady. I so remember her making oatmeal pies, and I loved them. She will be so missed. May God's love and peace be with all of you.

I love my Aunt Ruth. She was always a lady and a prime example of a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Aunt Ruth loved The Lord with all of her heart. Aunt Ruth, Aunt Velma and my mom, Virginia were extremely close sisters who could always turn to each other in good times and bad. She had a loving heart and will truly be missed. Until we see each other again, Tina
