  1. Ruthie was a beautiful lady both inside and out…she was a great friend and we were blessed to spend time with her in AZ. She was quite a card player and loved to organize our card games and potlucks. God blessed her with a long and fruitful life. Our sympathies go out to her family, she was loved!!

  3. Don Giesmann says:

    Ruth was a wonderful Christian and shared so much love with all who knew her. May God bless your family with comfort and warm memories. When I was called to pastor in Genoa, Don and Ruth invited me over for dinner. A super meal and great hospitality which I will never forget. I was blessed to see Don and Ruth several times over the years. They would attend both the Lutheran Church and our Church. It was a joy to know them both . God’s blessings on you all. Warmly, Don Giesmann, Pastor, St. John’s United Church of Christ, Genoa, OH
