Special aunt to Debbie and Real. A very special thank you to Dr. Mitchell and the staff at ICAN, Bayshore and CCAC for everything they have done for Ruth and our family. Ruth enjoyed playing cards and traveling but her greatest joy was the time spent with her family. She will be dearly missed by family and friends and was “Nan” to everyone. In keeping with her wishes there will be no visitation. A Celebration of Ruth’s life will be held at a later date.
