Condolence: I want to thank you for trusting and believing in me. I always looked forward to your clever notes and cards. They always lifted my spirits and gave me a great deal of support as well as surprises. You are very special and I will miss you. Your kindness and support will never be forgotten. You will forever be my Annie Mae.
Condolence: Heavy is my heart that one of my dearest friends is gone. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met. Ruthie loved children and treated my two boys like gold. She was like an extra grandmother, sending them birthday, Christmas and holiday treats ever since we moved from the area. They would excitedly rip open her packages to find it loaded with candy!! She loved to indulge them and she always remembered everyone's birthdays. I'm sure she played a big role in keeping the Paper Store and other downtown businesses open.
Since moving out of state, Ruthie and I would have weekly phone conversations and she'd share stories of her life. It was the next best thing to seeing her. I know that she always wanted a dog, and I hope now she is up in Heaven with a furry, little companion smiling down on us. She was a one of a kind, independent woman and the streets of Clinton will never be the same without her. Thank you to everyone who has been kind and helped her.
Condolence: An angel from earth was called for by the angels in Heaven, this angel happened to be our Ruth Morris, a devoted member of St. John the Guardian of Our Lady Parish of Clinton, Ma.
We shall not find a heart so loving, so kind and a voice so soft. Her sweet smile and was an inspiration so worthwhile.
Ruth gave sunshine wherever she chose to be. She was most happy with her job at the Clinton District Court House and the friends she made there for many years where she retired from. She volunteered at the Clinton Hospital Guild Thrift Shop and continued to bowl into her early 80’s.
Ruth was a member of The Red Hat Society and a proud recipient of a Shillelagh from the Clinton Leprechaun Society.
This wonderful, fun loving woman loved her family, friends and adored the many children that came into her life and spoke of them often with great love in her voice.
She fondly shared memories of her childhood and her deeply loved sister Mary. She and Mary shared many days walking together visiting and shopping locally. They shared much of their time humorously picking on each other and making others smile.
Having known such a gem of a person as Ruth has been certainly a pleasure. Her simple and caring ways that made everyone feel comfortable, will always be remembered. Beautiful and serene, as she was while on earth, we pray that she enjoys the bliss of angels in her next life.
Difficult as it may be, we know for sure she would want us all to be the same, spreading joy and peace in the lives of those around us. May we remember her example, so that she may continue to smile even in her heavenly home with the loved ones that are waiting for her as she receives her beautiful wings.
Over the last few months, there was a song that was shared with Ruth and she loved it. Listening to it brings great smiles and comfort to us. The song: “Take a Little Walk with Me” by Alastair Moock and Elizabeth Mitchell is well worth sharing to those who loved Ruthie.
With loving memories of Ruthie from the many people, and friends that felt like family and visited her at:
It is sad that you have gone to heaven and joined the other wonderful Clinton iconic people, who made this town what it is. I know you missed your parents, Temple and Blanch Morris, terribly and now along with Mary, your family is reunited once again. I will never forget the Sunday before you left us when you were all snuggled in bed smiling and waving to me. We had a wonderful visit that night. You are such an inspiration, your spirit will live on inside of those of us who love you and know you well.
Condolence: To the entire Ingano family.
My deepest sympathy to each of you in the loss of a very loved individual. Words are not enough to express my deepest sympathy. I had the pleasure of knowing Ruth at the Clinton District Court for nearly 20+ years. We stayed in touch after her retirement and enjoyed having a “beverage” with her at the many little restaurants in Clinton and more recently w/Mike then Fran had they store on High Street and at the Tea House, Old Timer, Compulains, Dunkin Donuts and more recently at McDonalds and then of course at Dairy Queen. Ruth would always remember many of her friends and send them greeting cards for birthdays, anniversaries, get well and much more. Ruth was a very kind hearted individual and I had the pleasure of knowing her for nearly 3+ decades. She enjoyed going to Church with Rev. Welch and of course looked forward to her day of bowling. May God Bless and be with you Ruth and you are already missed. May God Bless and be with the entire Ingano family during this very difficult time. Ruth you will be at rest with your family. With heartfelt sympathy – Dave Bartlett.
Condolence: Ruthie, You are one of those very special people in life that it was an absolute pleasure to know. You were very kind, caring and compassionate and a true "angel" on this earth. Now you have gone home to your real family. I am so glad to have visited with you in Sterling. You will be truly missed by your friends.
