So sorry for your loss. I worked with Ruth many years ago when she worked at Gleason's in Fort Madison, She was always a happy spirit and a joy to work with. She was as pretty on the inside as she was on the outside. I have wondered where she went and how she was doing. I will always remember her with kindness and her good qualities. You have my sympathy and my prayers.
