I will miss Ruth so very much. She was a wonderful and caring person, who was always there with a listening ear and encouraging words. The Town of Newborn will not be the same without this wonderful woman. I will miss seeing her at Town Hall, miss seeing her grilling hot dogs at Arbor Day, miss seeing her doing all she did to help at the festivals in Newborn. God Bless You Dear Ruth. You will be missed. You are loved.

Ruth is gone from our lives much too soon but is in a better place. She lived on my street when we were growing up and we spent countless hours together. I've been shedding tears since I heard about her death. Ruth was a blessing to so many and will be missed.

Ruth was the best kind of character in Newborn - she SHOWED UP - for watering trees, for town council, for the Newborn Area Heritage Trust, for the Library, for hot dog grilling, for "happy hours," whenever help was needed, she showed up with a smile and got the job done. Her passing leaves a big hole in our town - and in our hearts.
