  • I worked at Galion Dresser with Ruth. I was in the Maintenance Office and she was in Purchasing. She was always so pleasant to work with, and so good at what she did. She was a lovely lady. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

  • We are so sorry to hear about the death of Mrs. Mc Neal. We had missed her at our Church community meals lately.What a nice lady she was. I knew her thru her good friend Jean Ricksecker and Larry knew her thru her son Jim who he played music with back in the 70’s, and we were classmates of Bob and Jim. May she rest in peace. Thinking of all of you.
