Aunt Ruthie was a very special woman and so filled with energy. We all knew her as Aunt Plochie. She had a great sense of humor and put up with our nickname for her. However this was to be kept in the family only. Blessings and love to Phyllis, Mike and their families.

Our deepest sympathies go out to your family. While I personally did not know Ruth, my mother Irene Waltz , was one of her closest friends. Mother and Ruth visited almost daily for years, sharing news, stories, and longtime friendship.
I'm sure that they are reconnected in Heaven, and are visiting again. May you find peace in your memories.
Cyndy Waltz Billmeyer and Mary Waltz Wills

My sympathy and prayers to Ruth's family. My grandson, Dane, and I so enjoyed our visits, almost every Saturday for about a year, with "Grandma Ruthie" when we would visit my Mother at Applewood III. She was so kind to a full of energy 5 year old boy, and often gave him a card, a treat, or a small toy. Dane and I will miss her. God bless you.
