Memories of Aunt Ruth from Fran and Darryl:
Our grandson Zack had a school project to interview the oldest member of his family and that was Aunt Ruth. She was still living in her house at that time. She told Zack many stories of her childhood and early married life. Zack loved every minute of listening to her stories and talking to her.
He wrote a great report and talked about her many times. Darryl and I and Zack loved the afternoon we spent with her and think about it frequently.
Darryl's memories of Ruth are how nice she always was to him and Steve, When we visited she was glad to see us and always was always cheerful.
