I meet Ruth and Ben when they owned the Hartwell Marina. She was from West Virginia and so was I. Truly loved her as a friend. May God Comfort her family during this sad time.

Ruth Ann will surely be missed. She was one hard working girl, always giving her all helping some group or someone in her community. A genuine warm and loving person, it was my privilege to have known her for 25 years. Margaret Haley

One of my Dad's closest friends. She was like a second mother to me. Mrs. Bee would encourage me to achieve my goals when others did not. I will miss her. A wonderful, gentle person.
