From: Becky and Trevor Blumhagen
Relation: Aunt

Sending love and prayers to all the family. Auntie Ruth was a special lady, hold all the memories close to your hearts. I remember going to the farm as a little girl, and was thrilled when she gave me a head of garlic to nibble on, on the long car ride home. Dad was fine with it, Mom hated the smell of garlic. You can well imagine what the car smelled like by the we got to Castor. Auntie Ruth laughed!

From: Beverly Morie
Relation: neice

Dearest Auntie Ruth, so many good memories….the tastiest nachynka, tiniest holubtsi, making butter from scratch, and sacks of poppy seed. The visit we had with you last fall was still the best. I’m so glad we made it up to see you. May the angels carry you on gentle wings to a peaceful rest after a life well lived. My thoughts and condolences to my cousins and their families.

From: Monica Morie
Relation: Niece

Sending deepest sympathies to the Hupalo families after the passing of your Mom & Gramma. I have such warm memories of Aunty Ruth on the farm, eating her fresh perogies and oh-so-good dill pickles. She carried on the tradition in St. Paul with her huge garden, always working & enjoying her work. I am so glad that I was able to have a good visit with her last fall, still with a twinkle in her eye!! She will always have a place in my heart, RIP dear Aunty Ruth.

We had the pleasure of meeting this sweet lady at Matt and Brittanys wedding. She was a huge part of my daughters life. There is no doubt that she is in Heaven cuddling our little Grayson.
