I remember Ruthie being my grandmother's (Marjorie Nickerson Douglass) close friend when I was a little girl. I still remember visiting her at the big white house on Central Street. Her brother Fred moved to Florida with us back in 1969 and was very close to our family. Lots of fond memories. Prayers for her family and friends.
