|"....Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever." - Psalm 23|
Ruth was a vibrant, independent, and very creative spirit - she touched many in her life and was such a cherished friend, cousin and companion to us. Ruth was so proud of her German heritage and had such fond memories of her travels to visit relatives in Germany. Ruth loved all things nature and animals - as an accomplished artist, she was drawn to paint the things she loved most.
In later years, Ruth would live in the family's country home in Saugerties, NY and was drawn to the creative enclave of Woodstock. Here she would find the friendship and company of those who shared her passion of arts, nature and causes.
Because Ruthie's network spreads across the states and seas, we wanted to create a "meeting place" - a virtual way to share a cup of tea and reflect on an amazing woman with a very interesting life.
"Happy Birthday Aunt Ruth. As the years go by, we have found peace in trying to honor you as best we could at the time. We remember you, Waltraute, Augie and your parents always! The fall foliage is just spectacular this year - you would love it! XOXO"
"Remembering you every day and especially today! Love Laura and Aug"
"Thinking of you today! Love Laura and Aug"
"Dear Aunt Ruth - thinking of you especially today! You remain in our thoughts and prayers. Love Laura and August"
"Dear Aunt Ruth - you are always in our thoughts and prayers! Love Laura and August"
