    candle 1I am so saddened by the loss of my dear friend. She was my inspiration in Red Hats and I loved her dearly. Her spunk and wisdom always amazed me. Even after my move to Chicago last year, I left my heart with her. To the Pisciotta family, I pray for comfort for you and celebrate her life. I will always love and miss her!

    candle 6In love, peace, and joy.
    I only knew Ruth thru Karen’s posts. But I felt her radiance, love, and generous spirit in every photo and experience shared. What an amazing gift to each and every human being who had the opportunity to be touched by her essence. Her smile is contagious. Her memories, her spirit lives on in the lives of those she loved. Blessings and prayers to all. Celebrating her long and beautiful life as a child, a daughter, a wife, a mother, a grand-mother, a great grand-mother and a beautiful friend to so many.

    It was always a joy to see Ruth at Aunt Jo and Uncle Bill’s in Benton. She was a delight and always asked about our family and really listened and cared about what was going on with others. As many others have said, there really was something very special about her and she will be missed. We are thinking of all of you and know that she is so happy to be with Vito. Much love, Fred, Margaret, Levi and Olivia Baer

    Please accept our heartfelt sympathy on the death of Ruth, your mum, grandmother and great grandmother. We had the pleasure of meeting this lovely little lady and could not believe she kept 2 iPads on the go constantly for reading, Facebooking and keeping up to date with family and friends.
