    Ruth has always been a most wonderful sister-in-law, a loving wife to my brother Don, a terrific mother to Wayne, Brenda, and Bonnie and their respective families, and a dear friend to so many. Such courage she has shown these past 9 years with kind and loving support from family, friends, and caretakers! I will miss her dearly but will remember her forever. My thoughts are with all of you. Love, Janet

    Jim and Brenda Jordan says:
    Mom was a devoted mother and friend. Her baking, sewing and mentoring skills will live on through us (daughter Brenda and son-in-law Jim), Granddaughter Gayle and Great Grandson Marcus. This family branch was very special to her and she often shared how proud she was of each of us being inquisitive in life and accomplishing goals no matter where that took us across the country. Our travels often gave her excitement that it was a new area to come visit and explore, even meeting up for camping. She was a dedicated bookkeeper in our school years so she would be home when we came home from school in the afternoons. Working for the orange grove office, she had summers off with us kids and planned vacations. In later years, she loved to knit and sew and sharing her talents with charity programs like making lap robes for retirement homes and knitting baby caps for the hospital nursery for the newborns. Mom handled health issues with determination to maintain quality of life for as long as she could, overcoming adversity several times over the last 9 years. Her enthusiasm and fighting spirit will be greatly missed, however she will never be forgotten. Thanks Mom for everything you shared with us, you will forever be in our hearts. Love, Jim and Brenda

    Nana, you are a beautiful soul. I am so honored and blessed to be your granddaughter. You have an abundance amount of wisdom, love, and determination that has been shared to many throughout your life. I will cherish all the memories we have together from baking cookies during sleepovers to traveling to Boone in the summers during my childhood. How you were always around often visiting and spending time with my mom, dad, and brother. As an adult attending all my graduations, dancing with Poppa at my wedding, and meeting my daughter. You have shown me how to be caring and thoughtful and that it is important to spend time with family loving each other making memories together and I will continue to do that with my family. The love and comfort you gave to me, my husband, and daughter was truly special and I hope we are able to pass it on for generations to come. Nana, we will always miss you, and think of you often but knowing your spirit is around and watching us from above will comfort us. We love you and you will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
