Ruth was a smart, outspoken, stong-willed and independent person, who contributed to a lively debate in AP English. She will be greatly missed at the reuniion!

I did not know that Ruth was gone, until seeing this.  I remember Ruth as maybe the most natural person I met at Skyline--she would do what was right, even if it meant putting on very sturdy boots and heading off to the woods to protect trees in the Forest Service.  She and her brother Paul (classmate with my younger brother, Bob) started an inspired outdoor dance event, "Woodland Waltzes," to parody the Cotillion Ball.  I attended and danced at several--sometimes, no doubt, with Miss Ruth herself.   I think Ruth's nom de plume for the Cro Magnon Journal was "Roots"--and she did humor proud.  Ruth (and to Ruth's family)--rest in peace--amid the trees and the grasses and....the roots.

I didn't know Ruth in high school but the obituary request to donate to caught my attention.  My sister, Jean Falsone, also died of this terrible, rare, neurological disease.  My heart goes out to Ruth's family for I am sure they watched as their mother, sister, wife was slowly robbed of her dignity and her life well before her time.  I hope they had the chance to help her and love her as the days turned into years and were able to say goodbye to the person whose breath had stopped but also the person they loved so much before PSP.
