Dear Dottie and all of her family and friends,
We will miss Ruth but, in many ways, she will remain in our hearts and prayers.  In the past few days, I have prayed to her and for Dottie and all of us she has left here to mourn her passing.  Her gentle soul is at peace.  We love you, Ruth!

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Miss Davis. She was quite a teacher. I was in her care in 1967 and she left a lasting impression on me. I have a vivid memory of our Valentines day party and our decorated boxes. I became a teacher and every year on Valentines day I told the story of our preparations and party to my own class. The story revolves around Miss Davis making sure all students were included and that no one was left out. I hope your happy memories of Miss Davis hold you all up in these sad times. Thank you for sharing her with the rest of us, she was quite a lady!

Dear Family of Mrs. Davis,
I think Kindergarten teachers really set the tone in a youngster’s introduction to  their academic education. She was amazing. She made a deep, positive impression on me that I carry in to the classroom now when I substitute teach. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dottie and “the gang”
So sorry to, hear about Ruth’s passing. She was, as you so eloquently wrote, loved by her students and loved and respected by her fellow teachers. I spent my first five years teaching at Marquette Elementary School and counted her as a dear friend.
Thank God we also shared our love for pizza and beer at Barnaby’s as it gave my wife and son the opportunity to meet her and her friends. She will be missed.  Please accept my condolences and if you still meet with the gang, pass on the same to them.
Memory Eternal

As a young married couple, we lived next door to Dottie and Ruth during the ‘80s and early ‘90s. Their door was always open when we needed support or guidance. Our family will always cherish the backyard visits and annual strawberries pie. RIP dear Ruth.
