  1. We love and miss you dearly Grandma Ruth. I will always remember my summer vacations visiting you as a young boy and my fall trips as I got older. How could I ever forget your banana cream pie? You were such a sweet soul, one never to be forgotten. I wish my son Kyle could have had the pleasure to meet you. Love you always Grandma T. Love Shawn, Natalie, and Kyle

  2. We will miss seeing your sweet smile. You have been such a sweet friend and neighbor for almost 14 years! My daughter Cathron has thought of you as a grandmother and I often told her you reminded me of my sweet Mom. We were blessed to have known you. Love, Jacqueline and Cathron Armstrong
