I had the honor of knowing and working with Ruth at Liberty National Bank for many years. I have many special memories of her, but my favorites were when she called the hospital while I was still in the delivery room giving birth to our son, Chay, (they told me she was on the phone). The other was when she delivered homemade soup to our home soon after we arrived. She was so wonderful to our family, and I shall never forget her. Herman, God bless you and your family in your journey toward healing from such a tremendous loss.
Sincerely ,
Cindy Kramer

We were sorry to read of Mrs. Crowley's death as she lived around the corner from us for many years. I remember her shopping at Puddin' Lane, IGA before that. She was always impeccably dressed and a refined lady. Heaven gained an angel and we extend our thoughts and prayers to her husband, Herman (of 76 years that is so impressive) and David, her pride and joy. May your memories sustain you during this difficult time.

I enjoyed working with you for those 15 years as a Mercy volunteer. You also kept me informed about Hollis Okla.

Ruth was my supervisor in the New Accounts Dept. at Liberty Nat'l. Bank in downtown OKC. I transferred into her area from the Miss Liberty Dept. She was a very professional individual and I held a great deal of respect for her.
My condolences to her family and friends at this sad time.
