Ruthie was a sweat lady. I always enjoyed sending her cards and letters. Ruthie’s grandmother and my great-grandmother were sisters (Isabelle Young Weismiller, 1875-1966). Katie and Ruthie’s recipe for gumdrop cookies is a big favorite. Love to all of you in her family, Dale June Imes

Such a sweet Lady. Also known as our Aunt Ruthien. She was a loving cousin to my Grandma Rubie Deible Hallowell, and birthday twin to my sister Kim Averill Hall. Now with her blessed Lord and Savior.

From the Russell & Betty Alderton Family
(Russie), Ronnie, Randall, Richard and Rodger
Upon moving to Reynoldsville (home for Dad) we moved into the "Stuart House", next door to Ruthie and her mother. What a God send for our mother, Betty, with 3 small boys-1, 3, and 4 years old.
Mom and Ruthie became the best of friends. Ruthie was so compassionate, cheerful, friendly and welcoming. Being part
of the local bank, Mom and Dad knew where they wanted to bank. Being a good Christian lady, she led our family to the Reynoldsville Methodist Church. THANK YOU RUTHIE!
Our family moved to the other end of Brown Street in a year or two, but we still spent a lot of time at Ruthie's. I remember
sitting with Ruthie and her mother, Katie, listening to the "Ham Radio", communicating with her brother.
We, as a family, have always cherished our friendship with Ruthie.
