    Greg and I send our sincere condolences. I first met Ruth at work at University of (Maryland). She became a fast a d favorite coworker and friend. I watched her go through much of her battle and I was always in awe of her upbeat personality. Always thinking of others. Ruth gave me a lot of her clothes before she donated a huge amount to down size. I still treasure many of her pieces and think of her fondly when I wear them. Rest easy my friend. You will be sorely missed by all of us. Family we can understand how big of a loss this is. She would definitely want a party when Covid allows. She loved you all dearly.

    My thoughts and prayers to the family. Ruth brought so much happiness and smiles to the staff at the University of Maryland. As for me, it was my pleasure having the opportunity to work with her in the Business Office in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
