Karen, My condolences go out to you and your family….When we worked together at Shillito’s, I remember how your Mom was very nice to me and she was great. I even remember her checking me in the ED at St. Georges! Again, my condolences. Mark
I worked with Ruth from 1980 at St George Hospital until she retired at Francis/George. So intelligent and fun. I always enjoyed discussing books with her.and other hot topics of the day. A very cool lady!
Dear Mike, Kit and kids,
I extend my deepest sympathy and prayers on the passing of your mother and grandmother. I will be thinking of you and praying for you as you move forward without her.
May God bless you with the wisdom and gift that your Mother is in eternal happiness and will be sharing in the happiness of your life on earth. May you all be blessed with peace, health and love. Dick Maile
Mike, Kit and Family,
I was so sorry to read about your Mom’s passing. I remember I had to take my mom to St. George (way back when) for something and there was your mom when we walked in. My mother and her sat and talked forever about how time had passed so quickly since their children were young. Now that seems like a lifetime ago. Although our mothers are gone, I can only pray that we are left with the best of memories of them. May Ruth rest in peace with one of the best men I have ever known – your father, Big Bill.
Love to you, Kit and the kids!
I knew Ruth from my days as an ER physician at St. George in the ’70s. I was a rsident at University Hosp and “moonlighted” there. Ruth and Bill later became patients in my ophthalmology practice, in Madeira.
I always remember Ruth as a very pleasant and affirming lady. As ER receptionist, she was positive and comforting to patients and had a great sense of humor. I confided in her and respected her judgement. As a patient and friend we had great conversations and laughed a lot.
Take comfort in knowing Ruth was elegant, respected, and one to be emulated.
I am very saddened. I will pray and extend my sympathy to all of Ruth’s Family.
Mike and Kit, We were so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Renee and I would like to express our sincere sympathy for the loss of your mother. There are no magic words to express that will make the loss of your mom less painful. What I can offer is advice, cherish the memories they do last forever.
Jef and Renee Schachleiter
Mike and Kit…are thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Rosedale staff would like to express our sympathy for your loss. We enjoyed knowing Mrs. Staubitz and will certainly miss her. She was a very sweet lady. The picture of her in her obituary is absolutely lovely! Thank you for allowing us to take care of her.
I loved Ruth a lot. It was such as pleasure to care for her. She called me Peggy, and it made my day to hear her asking for me. She was a great person and will be missed. From her friend Pam/Peggy
