    We have many fond memories of Mark & Ruth celebrating Christmas at the McCances during the 60’s & 70’s. God Bless and we will remember you in our prayers.

    Ruth McCance helped me learn to love history. She was one of those teachers who made a difference in the lives of so many. I remember her wonderful laugh when she would talk to me about tests and other school related things. May she rest in peace.
