Aunt Ruth always had such a great sense of humor. I have many memories of she and my Dad teasing each other.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
All our Love,
Mary & Rick (Cheers & Hubbert)

I have extremely fond memories of Mrs Stiteler. Growing up, I was a close friend of Ray and a neighbor to the Stiteler family. She treated me as one of her own and will always have a special place in my heart. God bless her and may she rest in peace.

I hope everyone who is missing Aunt Ruth is comforted during this time knowing that she is at peace. She was a great woman and a true friend to my Grandmother, Eva Warden. They are together again in heaven.
