Ruth was a vivacious and strong lady with a unique sense of humor and warmth for everyone special in her life. She leaves behind her a huge legacy, so while my sympathies go out to her children, grand and great grand children, and her sister and family, know that all of you have a part of her that will always be with you.

With sympathy,

Kami Roberts
