What a lovely and lively soul Ruth was. My memories of her is having a beautiful big smile, holding a long, slim cigarette and calling me for fresh cheese curds and sugar free jelly beans. She reminded me of the EverReady bunny. What a long full life. She will be truly missed. Terri and Family at Jewett's
