My godmothers dancing with Jesus on Aug 29, 2019


Penny on Aug 29, 2019

Many many wonderful memories of Ruth and her family💜always looking nice and dressing so classy is what my mom would say. Gerry Lackender(Buser) and Ruth were such good bosom buddies and many will know that means several ways. Ruth was very independent, losing Buddy so early in her life and always liked her own cooking. Betty and her were a gambling twosome. With her many “toys that moved and love of horses along with her children and visits from grand kids too made her happy. The last years were painful for her and losing many friends and relatives isn’t easy but she kept on. Blessings to her family knowing she can rest peacefully with no pain and see her loved ones again who have gone before her. I loved my god mother who was a loving ,caring soul and made us laugh with her, a little wine helped too! She still like to speak German when some one jpcould with her, my son enjoyed her visit and pictures of the pass. A toast to a wonderful lovely lady whom will be missed but all her knew are blessed to spend time with her. Rest dear sweet lady , I will never forget you. Prayers that you will be dancing with Jesus, 💕🌹❤️
