For those of you with whom I grew up & went to church camp, you may remember Kevin & Ruth Shorey - niece & nephew of Leroy & Jane Ramsey. Kevin & Ruth recently answered a call to serve with Leroy & Jane in China. After arriving there, Ruth began having health problems & ended up having emergency surgery in Bangkok, Thailand. The surgery went well, however, she had a post-op pulmonary embolism, was rushed to the hospital, and ultimately passed away.
Memorial services are scheduled for Saturday, September 20 at 11 a.m. at First United Methodist in Longview, Texas. Donations for travel & burial expenses are being accepted, and I have that information if you'll simply post a comment that you would like to have it.
UPDATE: As a family we have decided this should be a celebratory service, so we will wear clothing that she loved us in. Please wear what will be comfortable for you. Thank you for all your help and support. Esther
