In Memory

Ruth Lufkin

Below is from fellow classmate Bob Seigel:

To all my West High Classmates 1970. Last Sat. I got a surprise visit from this young man. His name is David Lufkin. You don't know him, but should know is sister Ruth Lufkin. She was a classmate until her junior year when her family moved to Knoxville Tenn. I was very close to Ruth. She graduated from Maryville College with a degree in Political Science but never really used it. Instead most of her life she worked as a manager for a large national corperation. Ruth was married twice and had a daughter named Andrea. Years ago Ruth found out she had cancer and with the help of her loving family fought to the very end until disability and the cancer finally won. For those that knew Ruth know that she was a very kind, smart, and caring person. I'm not sure who in our class updates our website, but I believe being part of our class for 3 years she deserves to be put on our In Memory Of. RIP my friend.
