Sincere sympathy to all the family. I enjoyed pitching horse shoes with her. She had a beautiful smile. Rest in peace my friend.

My sincere condolences to the Pudder Family. I grew up in Chandlers Valley and adored Ruth and Orie....two very, very nice people. Orie cut my hair for years ( gave me a Mohawk one time) notice one time...parents didn't agree with it. Loved it when Ruth would wonder into the shop, always chipper and friendly. May they both Rest in Peace together now.

Sincere sympathy to Ruth Pudder's family. She was an aide at Sugar Grove School when I taught there. Always friendly and helpful ~Such a nice person. One time when I took my nephew to the Struther's Theater to see the country band Diamond Rio, we were in line behind her and her husband. We chatted a bit, and I was telling her my young nephew was a beginning drummer, and he was excited to see this band. She turned around and said to take their backstage passes because they were close to the group members, and had talked with them many other times. So, we were excited to meet the band members, and the drummer gave my nephew a pair of his drumsticks! Very memorable time! It was due to her generosity that we had this wonderful experience. Very lovely lady.
