Memories Timeline


  1. I met Ruth when I became good friends with her daughter Sandy. She was always such a sweet woman. I remember many visits to their shops and visiting with her and Harry. She’ll be missed!

  2. We always enjoyed our visits with you and Harry when we stopped by your house in Santa Fe. Sandy always said that he looked on you as an older sister. May you rest in peace and God be with you.

  3. I met Ruth Anne when my niece Trish married Kim. I always enjoyed my times with her and Harry.
    I will be thinking of all of you and wishing you well.
