Ruth loved cutting hair and had a special relationship with all of her customers, who were like family. She loved John Wayne, driving below the speed limit –even when it wasn’t safe to do so – going for rides in the mountains and having breakfast at Jabo’s Pharmacy. She was an avid reader and enjoyed going to the Stokely Memorial Library in Newport.
