Kevin and the entire Pappen family - I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Ruth ( Grandma as we called her ) wow what a Great lady and life to live to 93, I lived across the street from Ruth for the last 12 years or so and she was a Great Neighbor as we watched out for each other - there was nothing better to see than her eyes light up when we took her fresh home grown tomatoes - boy did she love them - she cared and loved her family so much as she always would tell me about them - I have so many fond memories of Ruth and will cherish them forever tell we meet again - RIP grandma Pappen

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I don’t know what I would have done without her many times. She was my mother’s best friend for so many years. She would take mother to doctor’s appointments so I wouldn’t have to drive from Ark City. She sat with her while I went to see my cousin in Stillwater. She would take mother to see her family in Oklahoma. So many memories of the two of them. Love you Ruth❤️
