So sorry to hear of Ruth Ann's passing.  She was always such a nice person and neighbor, we lived next to each other in Westwood.

My sympathies to Gary and family.  I worked with Ruth Anne many years ago at Young’s Pharmacy in Coatesville.  She was a very kind person.

To Gary and family, I got to know Ruth Anne when we both worked at the library. She had the biggest heart and truly cared about people. I have missed our jolly encounters since she retired. May she Rest In Peace.
