Aunt Ruth was so special to our family. We have such fond memories of the house on Given Rd and the cottage. Aunt Ruth was full of fun, had a great sense of style and always made us feel loved. Everytime I put on my knitted slippers I'll think of her. Thinking of Uncle Art and sending our love.

Aunt Ruth was my very special aunt. In the summers, for one week, I was allowed to stay with Aunt Ruth and Uncle Art. It was heaven. My own bedroom, I could stay up late and I was the center of attention. That’s a rare occurrence in a family of 8 kids. She would buy me dinky toys and for snacks we would drink ‘Swamp Water’, a mixture of A&W root beer and A&W orange pop.
The memories are endless, but thankfully ever present.
This hole in my heart will never heal. I love you Aunt Ruth. Rest peacefully
Love Brian

Aunt Ruth was such a huge part of our lives. There were the eight Prosser kids who were always spoiled by her and Uncle Art.

I can remember the excitement of going out to their place in the country. A huge yard backing onto a corn field and across the road from the woods.

She and Uncle Art were always fun, never uptight about this mob that descended on their place. The special Christmas and New Years celebrations. She always made me mashed potatoes if she was serving scalloped potatoes because she knew I didn’t like them.

I remember getting my first taste of an A&W burger and the whole tray on the window experience in her awesome green Pontiac GTO!

I still love hearing Roger Miller or Johnny Cash that played in the 8 track player. I think that’s why I still country music.

To say that she and Uncle Art had a huge impact on my life is an understatement.

I will always have fond memories of growing up with my pretty, athletic, funny, witty and kind Aunt. Rest In Peace Aunt Ruth. Love Michael

Aunt Ruth was all laughter and fun. I was lucky enough to spend many summer days at the cottage with Aunt Ruth and Uncle Art. We floated on air mattresses in the lake, read Harlequin romances on the raft, did word puzzles by the dozens, knit, listened to country music and drank pop until I burst (We were never allowed pop at home!). And when that was all said and done, we’d hop in the car and Uncle Art would give us a roller coaster drive to the Races on Saturday night. I can’t imagine a better summer than that. Thank you Aunt Ruth and Uncle Art. I will always keep the happiest memories in my heart. Love always, Pam

I always remember Aunt Ruth being in bare feet and the sound of Charlie Pride and Englebert Humperdinck eight tracks playing as I entered their house or the cottage especially. She will be missed especially the beautiful smile and her naturally loving way. Thinking of Uncle Art in this difficult time
