Ruth was a seamstress, quilter, and homemaker like no other. Many people have told us of her acts of kindness. She made approximately 65 quilts in the 5 years after Quinton passed away. She never met anyone that she did not try to share the Lord with, wanting everyone to go to heaven. We are very thankful for her Christian life and the great example she set to everyone.
