Condolence & Memory Journal

My sweet Aunt Ruthie! What a joy to have her in my life. Our families lived on the same street on the East Side of Kalamazoo. We were like one family. I was always welcome in their home. And memories of Aunt Ruthie on Girl Scout camping trips! What a trouper she was. And then to think we also lived in Venice, Florida, which was my home for 30+ years. 98 years is a long time and she lived it to the fullest. Love of family and friends, she was a special lady. I wish I could be there to give hugs to all my family at this time of loss. I pray we will all meet again when Jesus comes!

A friend of her daughter Jane, I can remember this beautiful woman with the most beautiful white hair, her sweetness, and seeing the most wondeful Christmas trees with the gorgeous decorations at their home on the Eastside of Kalamazoo. My prayers to the family for your loss but this Angel with brighten the Heavens.

I will always remember how she managed to put up with us in High School, and her flying down the street in her Blue Buick.
