Ruth iles funeral expensives

Over five years ago, my great friend, Ruth Iles was diagnosed with Melanoma. She had the mole removed, and all was good…. for a while. Several years passed and an unexpected trip to the hospital for some broken ribs revealed that the cancer had metastasized and was now in her lungs & brain. Despite the diagnosis, Ruth continued to fight. She refused to let cancer keep her down, even during the chemo and radiation treatments.
Ruth’s fight took a tragic turn when the treatments failed, and the cancer continued to spread. Throughout it all, Ruth continued to be a pillar of strength, and she never counted the days, but she made her days count. Ruth passed on December 24, 2017. Ruth Iles will continue to be a beacon of strength to those that were blessed enough to know her and to love her. She will continue to inspire us to live life as she did, making each day count.
Ruth leaves behind three daughters, Lindsay, Brittany, and Deanna. She also is survived by her mother, Jackie, and her precious granddaughter, Rowan.
Ruth and I were friends since the 6th grade and there are just no words can express how special she was to me throughout my life. She was one that never gave up on me when so many others did. I will be eternally grateful for her friendship, her love, and her legacy.
I share her life, her story, and her memories to ask for your help for her children and her mother to cover the cost of her cremation and funeral expenses. We are asking for $3,000 to aid Lindsay, Deanna, and Brittany with these expenses. No donation is too small, and every penny will be a blessing for this family.
