I student taught under Miss Concannon in the early 1970's. She was a lovely woman who taught me compassion for my future students. Not only was she my mentor, but a confidant and wonderful role model. Years later, I met her on the school playground with my own infant twins. We had a lovely reunion and in spite of the years that had passed, she still remembered me!

Ruth was a master teacher with a quick wit and a storehouse of wisdom. One could always count on her to tell where the best deals were for clothing, restaurants, automobiles or jewelry.

As a friend she was a listener,and an advisor and let you know what
