    Clara Ruth was a wonderful lady who had a gift of making everyone feel like they were very special to her. She always made a point of remembering your birthdays and other special days and took the time to acknowledge them with a handwritten note or card. She always had something nice to say about you.
    We admired her strength, and her family bonds.
    We will cherish the memories we have of her. 💞
