I have nothing but good memories of Aunt Ruth. But when they moved out of state, I lost touch with seeing them. I used to stay with them I was younger than Steve by a year or two, I think, and older than Sharon. I just realized a few years ago what a tongue twister it is to say “Ralph and Ruth Root” Cause we just said Uncle Ralph and Aunt Ruth. Rest in Piece Aunt Ruth

Sharon and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember the three of us having a blast working together at St. Anthony in Crown Point. I was the front desk hospital operator. I never forgot you two. Sending love and prayers.
