A treasured member of the Ithaca Community and the greater area has passed away. Ruth Anderson was an eternal example of love, selflessness, humility, grace, and especially an example of sharing those gifts to all around her. Ithaca Public Schools extends deepest sympathies to Ruth’s husband, Neal, who has fulfilled many roles at Ithaca. The loss of Ruth is felt deeply by the many students, staff, and community who call her family. Our sentiments extend to them as well. To all our Ithaca and surrounding communities who are hurting by the loss of such a remarkable woman, we also send you our sympathies. A life as well-lived as Ruth Anderson’s touches so many. Some of whom will never know the value she brought to their lives.
