It was with a sad heart that I learned of the passing of Ruth. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed the times she came to Curves and the many conversations we had. She will be missed. My prayers are with all the family.

Ruth Ann was not only my sister-in-law but a dear friend and more like a sister than anyone I have every known. She was in our wedding over 55 years ago and my husband Roy and I will forever miss her. She was a good wife to my brother and wonderful mother to her children and grandchildren. She will always be in my heart and thoughts.
