Just heard of your mother's promotion to glory. She was a generous and caring woman a blessing to many. Ruth and Bill were treasured friends to my folks,their concern and care they extended to them in their later years was such a blessing to our family. Looking forward to catching up with her in glory.

Ruth and Bill were best friends with my parents Anne and Earl Genthe. They use to hang oout with them at my parents house I remember walking into the kitchen and all four of the laughing and giggling and it would make you smile and be so gratefully that they had such great friends. Now there will be laughing up in heaven as Ruth has joined my parents there.

I will always cherish the times spent playing euchre and also the fun we all had dressing up as clowns. Rest in peace Ruth.
