My sympathy to all of Ruth's family and friends. I met her at a painting class in Paradise, CA years ago. She was a great cook, talented artist and always helpful. Her paintings were cheerful, bright and beautiful. A true reflection of her personality I will miss you my friend. Rest in peace.

Ruth was a wonderful free spirit. She was self taught in the arts and horticulture. Ruth was always there for you if you needed a firend or a kind word. I have very fond memories of going to both the old Getty Museum with Ruth and Debbie in 1976 and the new Getty Museum with Ruth in 1999. Having Ruth along was like being guided through the artwork and gardens by an expert. We corresponded by letters for the last 20 years and I will miss her writings and friendship dearly.

Ruth was one of the most memorable people in my life. Right from the start, we were friends, and I could trust her to always be honest with me. In this day and age of pretense and lack of authenticity, Ruth was truly herself and shared with all of us her love of life. I miss her terribly, yet the memories make me laugh out loud as I recall them....and there are so many of them! My good friend, you have meant so much to me and you inspired me to never give up, no matter what. Thank you for that, and so much more.

Ruth, such style and panache. She loved her painting and usually had it everywhere. As artists we could always count on her to tell what she thought of our work. She was one to never hold back and we loved her for it. She was a very loyal friend and everything about Ruth was just , what can I say, it was just Ruth. We all just loved her. Photos of Ruth at a LOTA meeting.Keep that brush wet Ruth. Happy Painting up there.

Ruth loved to paint and it went everywhere. She loved to cook and was good at it.. She was such an enthusiastic person. When we had critiques at our LOTA meetings you could always count on Ruth for an honest opinion. We valued her and she was a loyal friend. She just loved life. The photos are at a LOTA meeting. Keep that brush wet up there .
