I had the pleasure of teaching next to Ruth at old Novak years ago. We shared the heat of a third floor in the fall when our rooms would be in the high 80's or more. Many fond conversations were shared in our doorways. She loved her students and she lit up when she talked about her family. Released from her illness, healthy with the Lord. My condolences and love to you all. Dixie Estrem

Jim and family. I join in the celebration of Ruth's life. She was a fine educator and a true lady. She impacted us all by who she was and what she did. I had the pleasure of watching her teach in a difficult time. She never violated here values and served her students well. It was always an inspiration to me to be around her. God's blessing as we all remember her many contributions. William C. Jacobson Assistant principal at Franklin 1968-70 and friend.
