  1. I remember the laughter, the sister time we had when Ruth and I came out one summer, and the love she had for us, her family that she missed every day. She contributed much while she was here and I will love her forever. Aunt Loretta

  2. Sharon, Liz, Bill & families, We are sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful aunt to me and will be greatly missed by all. Love, Michael & Elaine (Ellison) Bolinger

  3. Grandma was such an incredible woman and one of the most inspirational people i have ever known. I’m so glad that she was mine. I will miss her terribly and i am just so happy that Draven had a chance to meet her and love her as much as i did. Love you Grandma/G.G.

  4. Robbie was a wonderful Christian lady who showed warm hospitality to me when I visited her in her home several years ago. A special, sensitive creature has now seen the Lord, and is already enjoying a new, Glorified body in Heaven. We shall miss her greatly.
