    I had the honor of knowing Ruth. S he was a fun person, who I shared some good times with. That's how I want to remember her. She was a classy lady.

    I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth's passing. Loosing one's parent is devastating. "A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take." My deepest sympathy goes out to Uncle Albie and you five children, grandchildren plus great grandbabies. Thinking of you.

    My heartfelt sympathy to all Ruthie J's family.
    I had the privilege of working with her at Chippewa Valley Hospital - she was a classy dresser and friend to all. Will miss her smile.
