So many good and happy memories of Ruth. She was my Installing Chairman at Sedalia WOTM Chapter 1242. We sewed together, Crocheted, and many other Crafts. I will deeply miss my dear friend. Her smile, her laughter, and her being there for me when I needed help. Heaven gained another Angel! Donna Points
