Ruth Ann was part of the Lincoln gang and Bonnie Dearth, Judy Higer, Dianne Monroe and I went to the same church together too.  She was a sweet and fun and we all enjoyed being around her.  We are losing too many classmates.

Ruth Ann lived in my neighborhood and for several years when we were little, in grade school, we played together. She was such a nice girl. I wish I had looked her up when I moved back to Frankfort. I see she was just in Lafayette.
