    Carol and Kathy, So saddened to hear of your mothers death, but what a life, 90 + years reflects the strength of the steadfast women she was. It has been 18 years since she sold us our property in Riverwood and their is not a week to go by that we don't thank her for it. We still enjoy the river and woods and are grateful for the many memories that she has afforded our family. The Currie name rings loud and clear in Riverwood and always will. On behalf of all of the neighbors, please accept our sincerest condo lenses. Sincerely, Cathy Ripley

    Ruth was a lovely, gracious and caring individual. I enjoyed her friendship at CWF and again at the Bruton Parish Gift Shop where she charmed visitors and presented southern hospitality at its best. She will be missed.

    What a great lady. We had the pleasure of knowing Ruth for many years, both through working with her in the Bruton Parish Gift Shop as well as a wonderful friend. She was such a kind and wonderful friend and will be missed by so many of us. Her birthday was the day after Bob's so we always tried to celebrate in someway. Her smile will always be in our hearts and we will miss her forever. To her family, thanks for sharing her with us for many years. We loved her.
