  1. Ruthie was a wonderful lady. At Highland Middle School she took care of all of us teachers! My husband and I extend our sympathy to all of the family.

  2. Ruth was a favorite person for many of us “oldies” who worked with her at Highland. She had a great sense of humor and was always willing to help when she could. She will always be a bright spot for me when I remember my years there.
