Condolence & Memory Journal


Ruth was a lovely, caring woman to whom I took my alterations for many years. I always looked forward to seeing her pretty smile whenever I would visit her. She would give me pecans from her tree when it was producing. I will miss her and extend my sincerest condolences to her entire family. Ruth was definitely a bright light in this world.

Ruth was a wonderful neighbor. Not only did she beautifully alter clothes but she was so kind whenever we helped her out. She even baked us a cake once! We have missed you in our hood Ruth. You were a treasure.

Ruth was a special neighbor in Brentwood who did fantastic seamstress alterations. I lived on Arcadia Ave and enjoyed her historical perspectives on the neighborhood. Many will miss her helpful, pleasant style.
