To Ruth's dear family,
We are reluctant to say goodbye to dear one, but we are comforted in knowing that Ruth was ready to go Home. She has been such a blessing to us here the Historical Society. She was able to answer so many questions about Lewisville, Buchanan Presbyterian Church and the early families that went there, and so much more. Probably some of my best memories of Ruth deal with her constant search for good fresh sage to flavor the famous "Weber Dressing". One year she had had no luck finding any and so I found some in Amish Country and brought it to her. She was very thankful, but then in true Ruth fashion, the next year she called me and said that she had found a good source for sage. She wanted me to stop out at the house she had something for the Historical Society. So, I stopped and she had some things for me for the files. Then she also handed me a bag of small jars full sage that she had dried. She thought we maybe could sell it in our gift shops at the museum and office. I took it and after thanking her, came home and I'll be honest, didn't think it would sell. Well once again in Ruth fashion, it was a hit. She just had that way of knowing the value of all things, even sage. We will miss her and her sharp mind. God be with you all as you lay your dear one to rest. Sincerely,
Bart and Joyce Wiggins and the Board of Trustees of the Monroe County Historical Society

All of the Staff and Residents of Hannah's House send their condolences to the family of Ms. Ruth. Her presence was our anchor and she is going to be deeply missed for quite some time. From tying the blankets for the OCCL group to be presented to the ODJFS for foster children, to giving menu ideals, recipes and instructing the younger (and sometimes older) staff on how to prepare certain dishes. Ruth was our resident monitor and if there were issues that needed to be dealt with she dealt with them, whether that meant a trip to the office or a trip another residents room. Her handmade Christmas ornaments will be more treasured now and will be hung with great memory on the house Christmas tree. She was humble, kind and full of grace. We all loved you and will treasure our memories always. Enjoy your retirement dear friend and may we see you soon.
