I was in my early 20s when Miss Ruth hired me as a preschool teacher. I appreciated her insight, wisdom and vision. Her Christ-like example and selfless approach towards people will be remembered. She inspired me to become the person I am today. I am blessed to have known her. She always spoke highly of her family. You were/are very dear to her heart. Peace and comfort to you!

Heaven has gained a wonderful soul. I consider myself blessed to have gotten to know Patsy at the nursing home. Her continuous singing those beautiful classic hymns would fill a room. And/or the hallways. Her love for Jesus could always be seen in her. She was such an inspiration even till the end. I'm going to miss her. She is now with our Savior, the Lilly of the Valley.
