It was a privilege to have known Ruth Zytnick: a warm, gracious, kind, and generous woman who was the matriarch of a wonderful family. She never forgot her roots, growing up on Pittsburgh's South Side. My heartfelt sympathy to Allan, Joel, Sheldon, and the entire family. Know that her memory shall endure.
