SHE PASSED AT 5PM, OCTOBER 21, 2017 .....RuthAnn was found Monday morning, October 16, 2017, unconscious, without breath or heartbeat. EMS revived her after working tirelessly for nearly an hour. Unfortunately, that is too long for a brain to go without oxygen. Most of RuthAnn's wild and wonderful brain has clinically died. Life support was removed on Friday morning, yet her body keeps taking short, shallow, quick breaths. She has no chance of survival, but her death is not yet complete. I'm starting this page mainly to get help with watching over her during this time of transition. Please click on "Ways To Help" and sign up to come to the hospital for a shift. Meanwhile, you can also leave comments and stories and photos on this site (click "Well Wishes" at the bottom of the page). You can look for updates under "Journal". Thank you, to the legions of Friends of RuthAnn...we all know how blessed we are by her presence in our lives! big love, Ellen Arnold Lindsey
