Ruth was a good friend for many years. We lost touch when she moved to Flora. We worked together at Howard County Hospital/Howard Community Hospital. We were Nursing Assistants when the hospital had as many as 13 aids working . We also lived in the same duplex on N. Indiana for a while. She helped me through some hard times just by listening to me talk. Sorry I just heard of her passing. My prayers and sympathy for Dawn and all of Ruth's friends and family. Dawn if you remember me I went by Susie when I worked with your mom.
