I have many fond memories of Aunt Ruth at the farm in Englehard, and the RiverShore property. My biggest regret was not living closer. She will be missed.

I remember how often she very kindly accepted me into the 264 Bridge Club and how tolerant she was of my poor card playing skills! She was also Mistress of Ceremonies along with Alma L. Davis at my wedding. Rest in peace, Ruth!!
