After years of struggling with dementia, and a decade of praying to meet her Lord, Ruth Gardner died peacefully in the early morning of December 5th. With us in the room, and her hand gently held by her loving daughter, she passed calmly and quietly without distress.
She was 88 years old.
In the longest obituary ever submitted to The Topeka Capital Journal, Helen provides a sweet eulogy to her mother. (Click to read.)
When going through old family photos, we discoverd this one of Ruth from 80 years ago. It deserves posting.
Thank you for the decades of love and kindness.
We love you.
