My deepest condolences to the whole family. Ruth has always been dear to my heart. I have so many memories of her being my Scooters leader. I have spent many times in your home, being friends with Bonny.
Ruth’s love for the Lord was never ending and she was an inspiration as a prayer warrior. Ruth you will forever be missed. 💜❤️💛

to the families of Ruth , please accept our deepest sympathy on her passing. Although Dan myself Jennifer and Shawn moved from 911 3 rd st s e red cliff 34 years ago. I often thought of you all. Pamela as our babysitter , Bonny just around Jennifer’s age. Ruth taking me to the church where I learned to decorate cakes and make padded photo albums. John taking care of our house for a year as it took that long to sell it! Ruth and I had some very happy times together even though we had an age difference. I hope in her passing you will cherish her memories and this will help you through the dark days. Barbara Mishalkowsky and family
