Ruth was such a quiet encourager. As a fellow quilter, we spent many hours together learning skills and offering gifts to charity. I feel very sad to lose her. We also met at Dr. Boyd's office when we had eye injections, and I know how valuable her sight was. I am grateful for memories of someone so special. My condolences to her family whom she loved dearly.

She was my favourite Aunt. I loved her very much. My condolences to all my cousins and their children. I had an opportunity to see her at Christmas and I am so glad. She was in good spirits and still making me laugh. She was very special and she will be missed.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Ruth Ann’s family. We had a visit last fall helping me with our family tree. Her Grandmother and my Grandmother were sisters and it was most interesting finding out about our ancestors. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
Sincerely Helen Bremner Anderson

Dear Mike, we are so sorry for your loss. Although we never met your mother she must have been quite a woman. She did an excellent job raising you.
