I meet Ruth when I was 16. My grandmother took me to her prayer meeting and during that whole week I believed a lie that God didn't love me and that He would never forgive me of my sins. I thought that I committed some kind of unpardonable sin. Ruth gave me a message from God that day that changed my life forever. At the end of the prayer meeting I went up for prayer. I didn't share with anyone what I was going though. I just asked for prayer for healing. I not only got healed during the prayer but she gave me a message that lifted a very heavy burden off my shoulders. This is the message she gave me from God. "My little child, if you sinned against Me, I forgive you and I love you and I know that you love Me even though you have doubts about Me. I am not a mean God but a loving God who does not punish people for their doubts." There was a lot more to the message then that but the message was what I needed to hear that day. From that day forward God become very real in my life. And Ruth and I became best friends. She has been like a spiritual mother and grandmother to me and each phone call and each letter was always encouragement and love. She has been a real angel to me and I will miss her a lot. But I know she is in a better place and some day we all will see her again. My prayers are with her family Jane, Jill, and Joyce and grand children and great grandchildren.

Pastor Ruth was many things to me over the forty years that I have known her, a pastor, a friend, and a spiritual and personal advisor.....like family really. She always gave more than she got in return. To her family I want to share my deepest sympathies......your loss is heavens gain. She will always be remembered by me as a woman of strong character, great wisdom, many skills, and great compassion. I will miss her profound influence on my life over the years.

Pastor Ruth Stotler was more than an angel. She has been a blessing to me just knowing her. I grew to care for her very much as a friend and pastor. She helped guide me in my personal relationship and gave me great advice to live on for the rest of my life. The thing I liked about her the most is that she was so easy to talk to and she never judged you no matter who you are or where you come from. She was a kind friend, one of God's angels, and she is one of the best people I knew. She always uplifted me when I spoke to her and she always told me to just pray and take it to God. I got to spend one of her last days with her and I will be forever be grateful for that. She will forever live on in my heart and to her family, how lucky you all were to have her as family. Wishing you a lifetime of blessings and love! Lisa Rush & Dale K.

Pastor Ruth wasnt Pastor Ruth to me. she was Mama Ruth... just sitting down yesterday, i found me writing these words down :) You’re with Jesus: You’re with Jesus now smiling we can see Also with the angels finally free Up in heaven with mansions bright With your Savior and Lord in your sight With all the others who have left before Smiling and Hugging as you walked through heaven’s door Singing praises to the one true king. Part of the heavenly choir in which now you sing The race is over in which you won! So now go and claim your prize to be with the Son. Watching down on those you love As we share many memories, to many to speak of. Rest easy mama Ruth, and be free Because you’re with Jesus Up In heaven where you want to be. I Love you Mama Ruth See Ya Soon.
