  1. Friendly, Compassionate, Caring, Helpful, Pleasant and always with a big smile. These are the attributes that I associate with my longtime friend, Barbara Ruchti. This community and our world has lost a person of sincere interest in the well being of others. Her debits and credits were never mixed- up. Condolences to the family as they cope with her absence.
