Ruth’s family would like to thank the nurses and aides from Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice who made it possible for her to remain in her home her last few days. Their professionalism, respect, and their loving care were remarkable and so appropriate for such a sweet lady.
The best way Ruth would wish others to remember her by is to strive to live life as she did: accepting of others, doing the best you can with whatever life hands you, and always think the best of everyone.
