I worked for Ruth at Wachovia in Winston Salem during the late 60's and early 70's. She was such a nice person and I enjoyed my time with her. We had lost touch with each other over the years but I had always thought about her. My sympathy to her children, loved ones, and friends as you face your time of grief. Rest in peace Ruth.
