My sincere sympathy to the family of Ruth. I am her cousin and daughter of the late Kathryn Bowman Meadows. Sometimes her family would come to Steubenville where I still live. Marilyn,Marsha and I were the same age. Years have gone by and have not seen any of the Weeks for years or the grandchildren but my sincerest sympathy to all. Steve and Sandy Houchin.

Our deepest sympathy. I am a cousin. My dad was Jim Bowman. My husband, Sam and I visited Ruth and some of her family in 2007. I’ve called her the last few New Years. We took my Dad and sister, Gayle, to see her and Will in 1993 when they lived in Florida. And she came back to Steubenville when they passed away. Again, our sympathy.

Ruth was one of my instructors at Leominster Hospital School of Nursing. She was a wonderful teacher of nursing basics and was the perfect example of being a professional nurse. My sympathy to her family.
