  17. Dear family and friends of Mrs. Ruth Treadway, I am deeply saddened by the news of our loss. It is a tremendous one, and my heartfelt prayers go out to you. I can assure you that Ruth will always be with us in the same way in which she has enlightened us from the beginning. I apologize for my absence as I am currently on military duty in Iraq, and cannot be there in person to honor my dear friend. Please take comfort in knowing that prayers and support are extended to you all from the other side of the world. Ruth has always been supportive of me and my endeavors throughout the years that I have known her…and I am certain that her prayers have helped me through the darkest of days. I take comfort in believing that she now guides and guards me from the heavens above. Ruth will always hold a special place in my heart and she will remain in my memories as one of the most wonderful souls that has touched my life here on earth.GOD BLESS RUTH AND ALL OF YOU

  25. Dear Treadway Family, My sister who lives in area forwarded info of Ruth’s passing to me. I send to each of you my good thoughts and prayers. She was a fun and wonderful friend to me in HS and I believe now she is being looked after by her ‘friend’ God.

  26. Dear Treadway Family,

    I was saddeded to hear about Ruth passing. While serving as youth pastor at New Morgan Hill she was always so supportive of the youth and leadership of the church. She always had a smile on her face, a hug to give and a funny story to tell. The yard sales in candler will never be the same with out Ruth. Please know that my wife and I will have you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Finishing Strong,
    Allen & Melissa Scroggs
