I first meet Ruth when I began working at Osweiler's in the early 80's. She and Pauline Ruppel mentored me in the art of excellent customer service and taught many lessons about life and being a kind and caring person. She was a perfect role model and we maintained a friendship for many years to come. As life took us in different directions, she, Pauline and I made sure to keep in touch having dinner now and then to keep caught up on our lives. A true angel has left this earth. My thoughts and prayers to her family.
With Deepest Sympathy, Sue Campidilli Walters
