Such a sweet lady, I always looked up to her. Loved the summers visiting at their house. She always had a sweet smile on her face. You will be missed. Love Tammy

We knew her as Aunt Ruth. Always a lovly lady with lots of class and good humor. She always made us feel welcome in her home when we visited infrequently from North Dakota with our Dad, Uncle Lowell's brother.
They shared many trips with my Mom and Dad thru the insurance trips and trips to relatives.
She lived a great life, has a wonderful family and will surely be missed by all. May she rest in piece.
