Ruth was such a sweet lady! John and Ruth and my mother and father were apartment building neighbors and friends from all the way back at Concordia Teachers College in River Forest Illinois. They were neighbors again in Greenwood for around 15 years! I know she will be missed but we'll see her again in heaven someday. Condolences to John and the kids and grandkids.

Ruth was such a gracious lady. Loved her smile and positive Christian attitude. She will be greatly missed. However, it’s wonderful to know she is filled with joy in Heaven.
