Passing of a legend..........
A very moving tribute was published over at the Tailhook Daily Briefing. I strongly recommend it to you for your reading.
For the aviators whom she considered to be one of “Ruthie’s Boys” she was more than a bartender. The terms “social director”, “events coordinator”, “confidant” and "disciplinarian” come to mind. Aviation personnel deploying to Fallon and gathering at the O’Club Bar known throughout
Naval Aviation as “Ruthie’s Ready Room” or just plain “Ruthie's”, commonly witnessed a display all of those traits in one single evening.
She was a great lady and truly a legend for those of us who knew her.
