My sympathy to you all.

To Ruth's family-
Good memories of Ruth's love of little children, swimming and her hospitality when I visited New Zealand in 1999 after teaching with her in Tanzania.
May you know God's comfort,

Our thoughts and prayers will be with you all at this sad time. May you be reminded of many happy memories of dear Ruth as you reflect on her life over the coming days. We have great memories of Ruth's care, encouragement and friendship when I knew her in Tanzania. And how could we forget that smile.

Rest peacefully with your heavenly Father dear Ruth.
