Memories Timeline


  1. We Love You Ms. Horne!!!!!!!! PERIOD. Youre The Best Person to Motivate Any Student. Specially The Black Ones In a WHite Situation. Haha. Love The Middle Name by the way. Im sure your not checking your emails up there but if you are I Love You. Shelle Mayberry says She Loves You Too.. 🙂 Thanks for keeping me outta Trouble and Locking Me in Your Car 😀 Mwaa! Mwaa! Mwaa!! You ARE and WILL be Missed by All. “TJ Roby”

  2. During the last few years, RuthE and I have had long phone conversations about Pitt, UCLA, Ohio State and Steeler football. She would be shocked that Trestle at Ohio State is gone! We also talked about her travels and recently about her failing health. I will miss those conversations.

  3. My sincere condolences to the family of Ruth Horne. She was a longttime member of our faculty at both Rolling Hills High and Palos Verdes Peninsula High. Her contributions to her students were most valueable over the years and will be special memories for those of us who knew and worked with her.

  4. Dearest Family of Ruth Horne–As a counselor, when I think about those people in my life who truly connected with teenagers–Ruth is right up there at the top. Teens need someone who is is non-judgmental in their lives & someone to talk to that they aren’t related to–Ruth was that person to thousands of young people who, like me, will never forget her.

  5. My deepest sympathy to Ms. Horne’s family. What a wonderful lady. Ms. Horne was a fantastic teacher! I’ll never foget her mythology class, senior year. I went to see her a few years ago to tell her that I had become a teacher too. She actually remembered me. RIP, Ms Horne. Thank you for being in my life.

  6. Our heartfelt sympathy to Ruth’s family and friends. Ruth was dedicated to her students, her cats, her car, UCLA and sports, her friends around the World and all those concerned with the Olympic Movement and Olympic Pins which she began collecting at the 1984 LA Games. Ruth was quite a woman who sometimes lived on the edge, a college BB player, and an author of mystery books. You will be missed, Rooti. Rest in peace and we will meet again, God willin’, and the creek don’t rise. Peggy and John Kelbley
