Everyone remembers her (Ruthie's) Laugh, it was uniquely hers alone. Her compassion and desire to protect those she loved were incomparable. Sadly, she lost her battle to brain cancer in July, 2009, leaving behind a beautiful daughter, 2 stepsons, a husband, her loving Mom, Dad and sister and innumerable family and friends who cherish her memory.
