Ruth was such an influence on my life. Her dignity, honesty and reasoned thinking were so admired. Ruth was my neighbor and friend well over twenty years. I just learned of her passing and am heartbroken. I will miss her, the world will miss her and she will always be remembered. Rest In Peace beautiful lady.
