Ruth Ann Cramer
A Tribute To Ruth Ann Cramer
by Matthew Cramer – 01 February 2017
When I think about you as a person – a wife, mother, lover, grandmother, playwright, great-grandmother, director, teacher, and author, I am in awe.
Through a boundless love that you share with all, I am a better man than I ever hoped to be.
Yet all your accomplishments have been achieved in spite of incredible sickness, pain, suffering, stress, fear, and the loneliness of endless hospital and rehab confinement – all punctuated with visits to death’s door more than nine times.
You are truly a remarkable woman, a blessing to all, tirelessly and selflessly sharing your love and gifts with us. Anyone who comes in contact with you is given cause to praise Our Loving God for your creation and allowing us to enjoy such a gift.
And now, after 80+ years, an age no one predicted would arrive, we celebrate your passing into the company of angels and Our Blessed Lord — to claim the inheritance He purchased for you at great price.
We shall miss you Ruth Ann — always grateful for the cornucopia of life you eagerly lived here, in which you unerringly demonstrated Our Lord’s love for us all, and each.
