    Dear Gary and Family, I remember meeting you and Ruthann when we joined the St. Louis Jaycees soon after moving here from California in 1970. Rex and I knew no one. He got involved with the men. The Jaycee wives welcomed me with open arms, especially Ruthann. When I recently transferred to St. Catherine Laboure Catholic Church from Eureka, after living out there for twenty years, Ruthann welcomed me to the parish, remembering me from Jaycee wives! From then on, she always had a smile on her face when I saw her at church. She will be greatly missed by SCL parishioners as well as her many friends. Sandy Ghormley (widow of Dr. Rex Ghormley)
