It is with great sorrow that we share the news that our own Ruth Williams, was carried away by the angels last night.
Ruth has been the consummate organizer and housing champion for decades, learning HUD policies and making certain that these policies were applied to help low income families. She never tired of this task. I can remember calling her for client advice even while she was in the hospital waiting for this or that procedure, me insisting that she address the issue at hand. She always would, telling the medical team – you have to wait because I have this NUT on the phone.
There will not be another like her, and we are all so blessed to have had her in our lives for some 70 plus years. Ruth has been the membership chair of MI Welfare Rights, and a member of LRNA and will be sorely missed.
She left during the night at home with family, and her extended family close by. We loved her dearly, and she always knew it! Sleep well, sweet Ruth – you did good!
