I have so many wonderful memories of Ruth. We worked together for a decade and continued to spend time together after I had moved on. I will always cherish the memories of my beautiful friend and the very special conversations and times that we shared shopping together, and dining out. She will always hold a very special place in my heart! Sherri Burton

I will always remember the time Ruth stepped up and helped me out with making my girls Swiss Festival Outfits and Sponge Bob costumes despite her hands and fingers not working like they used to. They turned out spectacular and the girls won first place in both events! Thanks again Ruth.

We were so sorry to hear of Ruth's passing, but we know she's with the Lord. My mother, Georgie Koehne, wanted me to send this condolence. She's Ruth's cousin. She said she remembered playing outside with Ruth a lot when they were growing up, and getting into trouble when they went into their grandma's garden.

I worked with Rith for years at Fashion Bug and she is one of the most loving person I'll ever know. Prayers go out to the family for their loss. Ruth and I had some great times even after I retired, and she continued to do all my alterations. When I'd stop in the Dover store shed immediately asked " no Mending for me?" I will miss her dearly Penny Clark
