    Ruth was a gentle spirit! I never saw her agitated or upset with the children. She set an example of kindness for all that knew and loved her. Ed and I are so sorry for your loss❤️ Loved granny Ruth.

    Mrs. Ruth was so special and such a good friend to my mother, Christine Pitts. My mom enjoyed her company so much when they were both able to go places. Mrs. Ruth visited mom at Lincoln Care Center as often as she could. When they both ended up at Donaldson just across the hall from each other, it was a comfort to us knowing Mrs. Ruth was keeping an eye on her. I really enjoyed her visits and was amazed that she kept up with so many people and even remembered their birthdays. She had an amazing memory as well as a wonderful personality.

    Jimmy, so sorry to hear about your mother. You will think of things almost every day you’d like to ask her. Remember the good times. You have had a mother longer than most of us.
