From: Eleanor Baker

My sincere sympathy to Ruth's family. Always enjoyed Ruth's visits to the bank in Chatsworth. She had that twinkle in her eye and great laugh.

I am probably going to echo some of my sister's (Bev) memories here. Mrs. Johnson was certainly a big part of my childhood. As a kid, I distinctly remember bundling up in the snowmobile suit and walking up the road with my sister to get eggs and visit with the kitties. I was severely allergic but wanting to visit with Mrs. Johnson made the watery eyes and sniffles worth it. I remember Russ on the couch behind the big stove that was always had a pot or two merrily boiling away. Sometimes Leslie would be in the house too. It was a kitchen that was warm and full of Ruth's big roar of laughter. She always referred to us as "her girls" and that always felt good to hear. She was a wonderful soul. Rest in peace.

From: Bev (Leno) Minshall

I have many fond memories from childhood of walking down the road in all sorts of weather to get eggs and visit with Ruth. There were always a few felines wandering in and out and there was always a story as to why a certain cat would need to stay in the house and not go out in the cold. Her boisterous personality and big laugh was a mainstay, and I will always remember her giving us horseradish that brought tears to our eyes when we cooked it. Ruth, you were a mainstay of my childhood. You were one of a kind and you will be missed. Rest in peace.

Sad to hear of her passing. Enjoyed our phone calls ( at the end Ruth always said " this must be costing a fortune") Always made me laugh. Will miss her.
