A smile you couldn’t ignore. A hug that said “hello” or provided comfort. A hand that humbly offered help. Ruth Lavinia offered each to her family and many friends, and through her longstanding philanthropy, even to those she did not personally know. Her grace, courage and drive to help others will always be remembered. And, her caring legacy will live on through the Ruth Lavinia Memorial Fund. Thank you for your gift in honor of Ruth.
