Ruth was an extraordinary and well-loved woman who welcomed all into her home and found her calling and true purpose in serving others. She loved to cook and bake for her family and friends and was known as the Cookie Lady, especially for her “Crack Cookies” (so named because they were delicious and very addictive!).

Surviving are her daughters, Jeannie Budd, Barbara Moyer, Hope Jones (Michael), and sons, Richard (Runell) Moyer, Marvin Moyer, Steve (Teresa) Stanley and Robert Stanley; as well as 16 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
