So many wonderful memories of Aunt Ruth...unquestionably one of the sweetest and kind ladies in my life. Visits with Ruth and Charles (Dad’s young brother) were frequent during my school years in Burlington, and continued with Ruth in later years every time Doe and I returned for visits. A very special person, and particularly special Aunt, Ruth will always have a special place in our hearts, she was loved by many.
Jacque, Dick, and Sandy we send our love to you and families...Joel and Doe Philpott

Aunt Ruth was a special person. She was so kind and caring. We enjoyed getting to know her and Uncle Charlie. She is a great loss.
