Memories Timeline


  1. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers for the family. I remember Aunt Ruth when she and Uncle Dean would spend some summer vacations in Michigan visiting family. I haven’t seen her in years, but she was in touch with my mother on holidays and birthdays. Aunt Ruth will be sadly missed by all who knew her. R.I.P. Aunt Ruth!

  2. RuthDear Friend, Loving Prayers for you to Rest in the Comforting Arms of GOD❤️ Dolores Smerdzinski

  3. I will remember Ruth (“Mrs. E”) with much love as my “second mom”. She was a kind, gentle person who welcomed all of us neighborhood kids into her home as one of her own. As a college student I was welcomed into Ruth and Dean’s home whenever I needed a place to stay. Ruth hosted a baby shower for my first child, and always asked how my children were doing every time we talked. I will miss her dearly but know that she is in Heaven, still looking out for us. Rest in peace, Mrs. E!

  4. My sincere condolences to the entire family in their loss of a dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and aunt/great aunt. May Ruth Rest In Peace. Lovingly, Glenda Sigg

  5. We were so sorry to hear the news of Ruth’s passing. While we have known her for only a short time since moving to Ashby Ponds, she was always a source of inspiration, kindness and humor. She was a warm, lovely and charming lady and will be sorely missed by her friends at Ashby Ponds. It is a great loss for the family but know she is now in eternal happiness. Mary and Al Brown
