Ruth Ann Neuhart Konerla

09/20/1944 — 11/24/2012

What began as an ocular melanoma, the melanoma cancer quickly metastasized throughout the rest of her body. Through her courage and a steadfast faith and love for Jesus, she bravely fought with all her might for almost 2 years before she could hold on no longer.

She was the bravest, strongest, funniest person I’ve ever known. My mom was my very best friend & my twin soul. I am so lost without her. Everything I am today or ever will be comes from her. I love you, Mommy, and thank you for fighting so hard for so long. You will never ever be forgotten!
