“Ms. Ruth” as she was affectionately known to the many people who learned to skate at Pilcher’s Skating Rink; was a hard, diligent worker who loved her family. She spent retirement days with her beloved Pokeno group and her nights playing Bingo with all of her Bingo Buddies. She loved people, she never complained, and she always had a smile- a precious legacy to leave behind to all of her family and friends. 

The family would like to thank the staff at Many Healthcare for their kind and compassionate care as well as the staff at Superior Hospice. Thank you for using the gifts God has given you to love and care for our mother, grandmother, and friend.
