    Wherever Ruth went, she built a network of friends & through her leadership she always soared in seeing the bright side of every situation. The friends that she made at St. John’s Lutheran Church (Mamaroneck, NY) continued to stay close to her. She will always be my heroine!
    Even though she fought the cancer, she never gave up the fight & always held her husband, sons,& grandchildren at the top of her ladder of love! I miss her now & always.
