I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Ruth in Urgent Care for may years. I'm very thankful for all she meant to me and our patients. I could not have found anyone else who could have been such a joy to work alongside. I offer my sympathy to all Ruth's family, especially Brian, Brenda and Lois who I got to know personally. May the Lord bless you in this time of loss.

I began working at Gold Cross Ambulance in 1977. At that time, GCA took over providing EMS services from the Neenah and Menasha Fire Departments. Theda Clark desired to provide paramedic-level care. So while GCA was getting more people trained, RN's from Theda Clark ER would ride along with the hospital-based ambulance. I went on a lot of ambulance calls with Ruth. Although I hadn't seen her in many years, I remember those days fondly. My condolences to her family and friends.

My prayers go out to Ruth's family. She was a very wonderful person and nurse. I had the privilege to work with her at Affinity. She always at a smile on her face and always had time to talk with you. She surely will be missed by everyone who knew her. May God give you peace and strength at this time.

I am so grieved to hear of Ruth's passing. I will always remember her as being a gentle and humble person, and ha a joyfully spirit. God gifted her greatly, and she shared her giftedness to help many people. My prayers are with her family and loved ones. May God's Spirit lift you and give you peace in the knowledge that she is with her Savior.

I graduated from WLA with both Ruth and Randy in 1970. We were all friends, and especially Ruth and I had some fun times. Since I lived out-of-state for almost 45 years, I had not seen either of them in a very long time. I was saddened and shocked when I heard of Randy's passing less than a year ago, and now I'm having the same sad feelings after learning of Ruth's passing. I'm surely very happy for both of them though, and I look forward to a reunion with them in heaven. Meanwhile, I'm praying for comfort for all of the family. Patty Jahns
