Toodles Miss Ruth! We know you are dancing the polka and making everyone in heaven smile the way you did for us! Ruth loved animals, especially her cats. Memorials can be made to the ANNA Shelter in Erie.

The Koman family would like to thank the dedicated aides, nurses, cooks, and employees of the Edinboro Manor for the care and compassion provided while Ruthie was in their care. You are our heroes!

Another angel watching from above.
Other than being older, she looks like I remember her. A petite but strong little spitfire of a woman. Many memories from my youth seeing her out on the farm, in the barn, working along side Pete and in Gramma Komans kitchen.
I?d guess the last time I saw her and ?Uncle Pete? was at a dance in Crossingville MANY years ago. It warms my heart to envision them kicking up their heels with their dancing cohorts, Ed & Marilyn Hudy. What fun they are having !
The grief is ours but the joy is theirs !
Our deepest sympathies to ?aunt? Ruthie?s family and friends.

I?m so glad I had the measure of knowing her through my mom at the Manor. I loved her spunk and love of life! She made me smile!

Ruth was one of the sweetest, kindest, and most considerate women I’ve ever known. She may have been petite, but that never stopped her from hard work and getting things done. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She’s with the angels now. We will miss you, Ruth! RIP
