|We loved Ruth! She is Harold's first cousin. She was a great lady. We so enjoyed our yearly 'cousins' reunions. Blessing and peace to Hary & Mary Lou, Bob & Anne, Theresa & Amanda. We are sorry we won't be able to attend the services because of the virus, but we will be praying for Ruth and her wonderful family.|

|Was shocked to open the Journal this morning while sitting for my chemo treatment and to see ruth ann's obit. It has sadden me greatly to see the oldest of our family has passed. we have kept her in our thoughts and prayers esp. Since knowing she was in the nursing. we regret that we will not be able to attend any of the services--social distancing and masks are critical for us at this time. We keep your entire family in our prayers.|
