"“And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.  We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.”  Ruthie was a marathon runner in the race set before her; her eyes always on the champion. Ruthie’s beautiful friendship will be missed at NorthRock, leaving a spot that can't be filled.  My heart is broken but my spirit celebrates."

Her smile..her hugs...her encouragement...her prayers....her love.On this side of heaven she didn't know how much that meant. Now she does! My dear friend forever.

The parting is for awhile but the reunion will last, for eternity.
I love you my friend"

"God’s love  bubbled up within her and spilled out of her onto all that came in contact with her.  Eyes lit up, smile that sparkled, and as she hugged with all her might, she would say ”God  loves you”. We are saddened by her departure.  We are grieving our loss.  But we have her in our hearts, minds, and memories.  She will live on through us until we are reunited with her in Paradise !"

"What a lady!!  Ruthie not only believed that heaven was her home, she lived it, walked it and shared it every minute.  I will miss her hugs, and hearing the words 'I am blessed! ' and knowing that she really felt the Lords blessings even with all of her health struggles.. I am certain she is celebrating like no other now, and is receiving her rewards which are many. Love ya Lady!!!!"

This tribute was added by Brian Davidson on 3rd April 2012

"Joy & sadness always comes when a child of God goes home. When we lose a special saint like Ruthie however, the anguish between the two is almost torturous. I am burdened by deep sadness at her absence but overwhelmed with the pleasure knowing she is home. I dare say heaven will be slightly less overwhelming for Ruthie having already lived like the Kingdom broke forth on earth."

This tribute was added by Duane Vanderhelm on 3rd April 2012

This tribute was added by Sandra Schrawder on 3rd April 2012

"She walked the final walk and is now safe in His arms. She will be sorely missed for her sense of humor and constant smile in the face of adversity."
