Ruth always remember everything and everyone. Even though we've been gone from Kaukauna for a decade, she always asked about our family--by name. And while we were teaching in Kaukauna, she knew all the activities and never failed to comment on the plays and concerts at the high school. Debbie and David, Becky and Barry: what a wonderful lady Ruth Schmidt was--truly unforgettable.

Becky, Barry and family- Ruth has been an icon of Kaukauna as long as I have visited and lived around here. (that is going on to 40+ years now) Walter was still the Principal at KHS at the time. I would see her walking over the bridge either going to or coming from the high school. I remember asking Bill who that lady was that I would see so often. He then had to tell me about his run ins with Mr. Schmidt when he was still in high school. I don't recall one time that I didn't see a smile on her face. I have had the pleasure of meeting her in person and getting to talk with her over the years. She always had a sparkle about her. I know she will be missed. My hope would be that when it is our time people would have nice memories of us.
