Memories Timeline


  1. Martin’s mom always brought us M&Ms when all of Martin’s friends were hanging out in her basement. She loved when everyone came over She stayed young at heart her whole life.

  2. Aunt Ruth was an independent spirit with a generous upbeat personality. She adored Martin, Lauren and Alicia..and got much joy when around them!! I know Jack ( her brother) and Margie really enjoyed their fun times together in Florida when Aunt Ruth was in good health. May she rest in peace…

  3. I remember picking up Ruth to go to so many, many ORT meetings over the years and being a guest in her home for some of those meetings. She always had something to talk about. Conversation never lagged. She had been president of our ORT chapter before I was on the scene, and always found ways to stay active. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.

  4. Martin, My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Look towards the positive and cherish the memories that were left behind. As long as you’ve got memories she shall always live in your heart. Peace and Blessings. LaKesha Russ SBA OIG
