Ruth Leach, 67

June 28, 2011

On June 23, 2011, we lost the most amazing, strong, loving, surprising, funny, smart, creative, thoughtful and nurturing woman we have ever known. She touched thousands of lives with her sincere charm, understanding, empathy and generosity.
Many books have been written to teach what she intuitively knew and lived, with excellence and determination. We are devastated, but we were blessed to have had her in our lives. Cherished by her husband, children, family and friends, Ruth Anne Leach lives on in our hearts though her body is no more. We will love and miss her until we join her.
