  9. Ruthe … She was my friend for 34 years! We lost touch with each other after we stopped working at Fleetwood, but reunited years later. We just picked up where had left off! She was a hard working lady and loyal friend. She introduced me to her pillow beds and encouraged me to make them too. Together we started our businesses, swapped material, exchanged ideas constantly, meeting for lunch whenever we could. Last February we went to Cuba together and had a awesome time there, just relaxing! I am so glad we got to spend these last few years doing things together. I was shocked when I read the news of her passing, but I knew she was growing tired of the suffering. She sure did love her family! She would do anything for them … always worrying and trying to make things right. I am sure you will all miss her and the great meals she put on! . I have read the posted words of condolences from her many vendor friends on Facebook and know exactly why there were so many that liked her! My condolences to all of you, the Zimmers and Beemers .. we have lost a great lady!

    Everyone who knew Ruthe has a loss, be it months or years of knowing her, I am sure she touched the hearts and lives of all that knew her. She was a terrific lady, fun, funny, and she would tell you what you needed to hear, if you needed to hear it.

    She will be missed dearly. Syotos
