    candle 8Ru Ann was my dearest friend since we were in the 8th grade in Carthage, Missouri. We stayed close over the years and I am content to know that she knew how much I and my entire family loved her and enjoyed being with her throughout our lives. She was such a huge part of my life and I will forever feel her loss. My heart aches for all her family, but especially for Rhiannon, Robert and Kris. She is now with her beloved Bob in Heaven where in the end, she was ready to be. I love you sweet lady. Your forever friend, Connie.

    My dear Sister in law, I’ll miss our times together. We’ve shared so much family fun through the years. I remember when Phil set her up with Bobby. The rest is history. We were young together and raised our families together. Ru and Bob will be forever in my heart.

    Rhiannon and Rob, I am shocked to learn of RuAnn’s passing and send my deepest sympathies. May the Lord be with you during this difficult time and may you take solace in that she is now with your Dad for eternity. God bless you and give you strength and healing.

    candle 4Rhi and Rob — I worked with your mom for many years at Emerson and attended several local events with your mom and dad. They were a great, fun-loving couple who clearly loved their family very much. I am so sorry for your loss. They were special people.

    RuAnn was one of my closest friends at Carthage High. We had so many good times zipping around town in her VW Bug with no brakes. She was quite accomplished in getting that car to a complete stop with just the emergency brake. We had slumber parties in a tent in the yard. Pushing that old VW down the alley until we thot no one would hear us start it & running around after curfew. I’ll never forget the good times we had! Rest In Peace my dear friend. My prayers & thoughts are with you Rhi, Rob, & Krista. May the Lord comfort you now & in the coming days.

      We sure do have some fond memories with that VW Bug! She was the only one with a car. I remember getting big truck inner tubes from her Uncle, so we go tubing, and trying to stuff them into the Bug. I ended up holding one out the window as went down the street. we laughed so hard!!!
      Never forget the slumber party at her cabin when her Mom & Dad made surprise visit!!! That was a classic memory!
      Yes we have some memories that will be with us forever!

    So sorry for your loss. We used to run around with them in the early days. She was always so sweet. I can remember when they got pregnant with Rhi. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. They both will be missed.

    Your mother and dad were so very dear to me and your dad and Jim Miller I know are sitting in heaven together having a good time. Those two were brothers at heart. You were blessed with wonderful parents and grandparents. They were special people and my heart aches only because of your loss but I know how much they loved their family. It was my pleasure to call them friends and I know how very missed they will be.

    candle 3My heart and prayers are with Rhi, Rob, and Kris, family and friends of RuAnn today. I am unable to attend the memorial service.
    RuAnn was one of my best friend, my locker pardner throughout High School. There were four us friends who remained “Best Friends” from childhood, Melody Jessen Knowles Knowles, and Connie S. Henry, . We made a lot memories together! I am glad we all were allowed to spend time together with Ru in April. Moments I will cherish forever. She is now reunited with her husband Bob, who left us expectantly in October. RuAnn is no longer suffering the terrible pain of Cancer and is in a much better place. You are now my Butterfly!
    I miss you so much Ru! You will forever remain in my heart!
