    I was a long time neighbor of Ms Ruth, I have many great memories of her.... from her getting on me for doing dumb things as a teenager to her asking me to trim her palm trees and do things around her house for her, everyone down on South Arch knew her and loved her, I love you Ms Ruth and I'm so sorry for not being around for the last few years

    We were saddened to hear about Ruth's passing. We have been friends since the Oak Park days. I was in the Hospital Auxiliary with her and she was such a nice friend. Our sympathy to the family.
