Condolence From: Jeanne Hantman
Condolence: Ruth was a woman we were extraordinarily lucky to know. I met Ruth when my daughter Elizabeth started kindergarten at Southern Blvd. School. Being a teacher from the mid-west I had hoped to volunteer in one of the classrooms. I was surprised that parents were not welcome in any classroom for any reason. Ruth however welcomed all to her media center. She knew every child that came to the center, what books they had read and what might interest them. I had never seen anything like it. Ruth and I were instant friends. When my daughter was in second grade her teacher admonished her for asking questions, Ruth welcomed them. When her best friend moved to Belgium, Elizabeth wrote a book about it. She brought it to Ruth not her teacher. Ruth was her friend and mentor. When Ruth asked her if she wanted to enter a drawing contest about media centers, Elizabeth was excited. She won the contest and Ruth kept her picture beside her computer at home. She pictured Ruth as Snow White at the checkout desk. Ruth was indeed a powerful mythical figure not only to my child but to every child who entered the center.
Elizabeth is a doctor now with a kindergarten child of her own.
