My condolences to the Liebold Family. Your mother was a loving aunt, to me (Karen). I'll never forget the love she had for music or the days on the farm with your family, her love she had for Christ and especially her laugh. She was always laughing about something :-) I will always be grateful for your mother putting together our family gatherings for the holidays and reunions, that was important to her. Your mom will be greatly missed. Love you all and may God comfort you through this difficult time. God Bless!!

Dear loved ones, our love and sympathy are offered to you at this time.  Ruth was a very special lady and her leaving will create a big empty space in your family, but that space will fill up with the memories of that dear lady.  We rejoice with you when we think of her new home with Jim and other loved ones gone before. Thoughts of her fill our minds at this time and prayers for you all. May God's presence provide comfort and fill you all with His assurance of her welcome in heaven. Love Joe and Mary Kirby
