    Dear Galen and family, Ruth was loved. She was a woman who “walk the talk” with her Jesus. We first met Ruth at Fishnet many years ago. We have always appreciated her gentle way of sharing Jesus. She is “heaven gain”. We know that you will miss her presence but oh the glorious day when you will be reunited.

  4. Kim Hitt says:

    Dear Funkhouser Family, I just want you to know that Ruth was probably instrumental in me coming to love Christ because she was so instrumental in my mom’s young life. I remember coming to her house with my mom for bible studies when I was little. I knew the women there loved God and had the joy of the Lord. I can’t image how much more her eyes will light up in heaven as they did here on earth. You could see the Jesus that lived in her.
