My heart reaches out to you during this sad time of loss, Ruth was a good and kind friend with whom I enjoyed many years of on-line Bible study. May God help you recall the good and sweet times you had together over the years, and may the comfort of memories bless your hearts and the God whom she loved, bless you. Jesus is coming again and it will be his joy to reunite families.

Ruth was truly a very special person, not only to her family, but to her co workers and friends.   She had a special way of making everyone feel special, even if they weren't .   She will truly be missed and she will always hold a special place in my heart.    Her love for life was amazing.     

An angel she is now, looking down on us and giving us encouragement to go forward.   We will be amazed of how she will come through to us.   

Rest in peace dear one.  Our extended sympathy to the family and to all she loved.    Dottie and Russ Baker

I want to send my condolences to the entire Givler family. Ruth had a big heart for all of her friends and family, but especially her children and grandchildren.

Eagle nation has lost one of it's biggest fans as well.

Rest in peace Ruth, you will be missed.

Ruth had a way of making you feel like everything would be okay. She had a very calming presence. I never once heard her complain about what she was going through. She showed faith, strength and so much courage. 

A very kind and loving soul has left too soon and she will be missed by so many. 

May hope and happy memories comfort her family through these very sorrowful times and may Angel's walk with them today and always.

I worked with Ruth for many years and she was the the calmest person I ever met. I would see her every once in a while and she always stopped and said hello. Praying for her family in the days ahead.
