I want to express my heartfelt sympathy to the Kleba family. Ruth was remarkably caring. My Mother Dorothy asked Ruth to be my Godmother and Ruth took on that role with tremendous dedication. Since leaving home more than 50 years ago I could always count on getting a letter from Ruth filling me in on family news and containing some relevant newspaper clipping. I received the last letter just 3 months ago. Though we were separated by a great distance, she was often in my thoughts and I will miss her.

Ruth was a caring and loving lady. She and Ed were great neighbors and friends. Their yard and Flowers were such an enjoyment. Ruth was very proud of her children, and in her later years those children were so loving and attentive to her, just as she had been to them in her child raising years. She will be missed by many in her parish community, where she was loved and admired.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dianne and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to the Kleba family. Dave, your mom was always kind and thoughtful to me, and she brought warmth to my heart. I wish she could have ridden the Pacific Coast Highway with us, the summer of 2015. Wherever the road takes us next, I am certain that her spirit will be riding with us, and watching over us. We are so very sorry for your loss.......

I am very sorry for your loss. May the words of Psalm 34:18 be of comfort to you. "God is close to the broken-hearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit."
