I just wanted to share many things about our Cousin Ruth did not make it to the Obituary. She was a graduate of U of L, a Member of St. Paul's Church in New Albany. She belonged to many clubs one of which was a literary club. We have fond memories of her and Johnny coming to our home and our Grandmother's house, for Christmas, it was the time we enjoyed together with our family, maybe the most. She was the last of a generation in our family & will be very missed by her family! I will check back to see if anyone else has a memory they want to share with her family, thank you!
