Ruth was a crossing guard for 19 years at Levering School in Roxborough, Monastery and the Ridge.  We lovingly call it Mom’s corner.  She loved her children and looked forward to seeing them every day, making sure they were safe and they loved her back which was evident every Christmas when they showered her with gifts, both bought and home made.  Ruth was loved and will be missed by many.
