Ruth often reflected on her sweet life filled with love and good fortune. She was devoted to all of her family from the beginning of her life to the end. She enjoyed her First Christian Church Family, her bridge-clubs through the years, her exercise group, her loving across the cul-de-sac neighbors, Eddie and Joyce, her luncheons and travels with friends and family. Ruth had traveled to every state in the US except Alaska...... and oddly-Utah.
