  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Ruth’s passing. She was so elegant and well-spoken. I was happy to have finally met her through my cousins JoAnn and Ric Harris, as well as Ellen Stewart and Alice Chaurest, who often spoke fondly of her. We shared a wonderful lunch at the Bottle Inn, and then, more recently, at Mimi’s Cafe. My deepest sympathies to the family, and especially to Janie. Kerry Cababa

  2. Please accept my sincerest condolences on Ruth’s passing. She and Shu were good friends of my parents, Joe and Dorothy Kobata, and I kept in touch with Ruth periodically over the last several years. A special note to Lily- thank you both for remembering the South Bay JACL with your donations.
