A globetrotter with an adventurous spirit, Ruth traversed the world alongside her family and friends, leaving footprints on all seven continents, including the icy landscapes of Antarctica. Her love for the outdoors manifested in joyful pursuits such as hiking and canoeing, where she reveled in the beauty of nature.

Ruth's commitment to her spiritual community was evident through her longstanding membership at Lincoln Road Chapel.

Ruth's journey was one of exploration, creativity, and unwavering love, leaving an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to share in her vibrant and well-lived life.
