Aunt Ruth, You are a wonderful person that will be greatly missed... I have so many wonderful memories growing up that involved you. Of course as a kid, I loved going to your place so that I could pick out my bag of candies from your store, but I also loved visiting you over the holidays. I'll never forget the roasted pig on New Years Eve, the race track that Uncle Merl always had up for the holidays, or our many trips to your camp. Mostly, I will never forget what a wonderful caring person you always were. I love you and will greatly miss you. Ruth Ann, Becky, Cindy, Bill and Families I can only imagine how hard this must be for you. You all have my deepest sympathies on the loss of this wonderful woman. I'm sure that each of you have many more memories to share or keep in mind to help her spirt live on. I feel truely sorry for your loss and the loss to all of us. Eric

Our family would like to offer our sincerest and saddest condolence on your lost of a great woman. We had the privilege of getting to know Ruth personally through Monaca United Methodist Church before we moved in late 2004. Ruth always sent us Christmas cards and we thought of her often. We know that she is celebrating in heaven with our Lord and Savior. Her passion and caring will live in our hearts forever. God's diligo vobis, Jon, Darla, Tesla and Koral Hickey

Becky, Cindy, and Family- I am so sorry to hear about Gram. Working at Gallagher's was very rewarding for me. I can remember always getting to talk to her when I'd go back to check the daily number or even just to fill some ice bags on those hot sunny days :-) She was a wonderful person and she will be missed. Love, Courtney

Dear Ruth Ann, Sandy and I extend to you our deepest sympathies on your mom's death. It is a difficult thing to face. Ruth was a wonderful person whose life of caring and giving of herself is rightly celebrated by all of us who had the privilege of knowing her. We hold many fond memories of our time working with her in the church kitchen, on the Apple Festival, making apple butter,crafts, and on the various committees in the church. We were honored to have known her not only as a member of the Monaca UM Church, but also as a friend. God is with you as we are,too, in your grief. You are in our thoughts and prayers. With Love, George & Sandy Dran

To the Garuccio Family, I am so sorry to hear about your Gram, I know you loved her very much. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Becky and Katy, I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better. The only thing I can think of is she did have a long life and her sickness was short and that is a blessing. It was her time and now she is with God. It is the living that are so sad for their loss. Be strong and know you are loved and supported. If you need anything......... Deepest Sympathy, Paula

Ruth and my mother(Ann Cunningham) lived near each other and were good friends. Ruth even visited many times after she moved to Monaca. Sadly my mother passed away in 1989 but perhaps they will meet again in heaven. My condolences go out to Ruth Ann and the rest of her family. The Lord be with you in your time of sadness.
