Ruth was my oldest sister and was always first to get things done. When going to St.James Lutheran Grade School and we didn't have any lunch food, Mom would give Ruth some money to buy rolls and bologna at the store close to school.She made sandwiches for us. That was a treat from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. After our parents were deceased Ruth always had place for us to stay when we visited family in Lafayette.She will always bey "big sister"

Ruth was such a wonderful person. I met her through Extension Homemakers and enjoyed spending time with her listening to her stories and sharing her faith. She was always doing some type of heritage skill and entering projects at the Tippecanoe County Fair Open Show. I remember her for her kindness and her patience. She will be missed. Sending prayers for God's peace and strength for the family.

Grandma was an amazing person. I have so many great memories of her growing up as a child that it is hard to pick just one. She was an extremely patient, kind and giving person of both her time and love. After raising three boys of my own I now know just the amount of work that must have taken. The result of that hard work is now very evident in my uncles and dad. She and I had a deeper connection and a love for art one of her many hobbies. She taught me how to paint ceramics when I was younger which later blossomed into oil on canvas that I can proudly display. Grandma read more books than any human on this earth! I remember that she had a wall of books that she read multiple times each and was always hungry to add more to her collection. I will forever cherish all our time together and will remember her sweet voice when I called. Thank you, grandma for giving so much to this world. We love you. -Ryan & Sarah Braun

Jan and Family, I'm sorry about Ruth's death. Wow! 100 years! She had a good, long life. When I saw her picture, before I saw her name, I knew she was a Davis. I hope your family memories will help you through this difficult time. May God bless you.

Please accept my sympathy at the loss of this lovely lady. She was a neighbor when we both lived on Windmill Dr. I always enjoyed our chats. We shared our faith and our lives. I saw on from time to time at extension homemakers. She was loved I know and she radiated that love to all she came in contact with.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ruth was such a sweet gentle person with a quick easy laugh. What a big family legacy she leaves behind, I know she will be missed and we are sad about her passing but there is much rejoicing in heaven and I am thankful that she's there with the family who went before her. Deepest sympathy to the whole family.

Jan, Don, and Tammy, I just heard about Ruth's passing. We, Ken and I, are sorry and please accept our sympathy. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We will not be able to come to Redeemer on Monday as we both are just out of quarentine from having Covid. A lot of memories came forward as I heard of Ruth's passing...from working at Lafayette National Bank, to Extension Homemakers, and everything in between. Celebrated 100 years!!! God gave her a good life and she rejoiced every day given. Will be thinking of everyone Monday. Take care! Stay Safe!

So sorry to hear, her goal was 100 and she made it. I enjoyed visiting with Ruth at Fairfield Extension Homemakers. I thought about her a lot and thought a lot of her. Jeanie

Such a wonderful lady. She loved to have the young college men sit next to her in church. I would tease that she was always looking for a new man. Rest in peace.
