I loved Aunt Ruth, she was so kind and fun when we would visit and stay in her home in Johnstown. And her homemade ice cream was the best! She was a wonderful and thoughtful person, she will be greatly missed. My condolences to Nancy, Jim, her grandchildren and brother Bill and sister Ida, my mom. My God bless all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. With love, Bev

That picture of grandma Ruth at the computer says a lot! She knew more about technology than most folks half her age!

Her life is truly a testament to God's grace and power.
