Linda, Ted, Sue, Paul and Jody Growing up on Blake Street right across the street from the Bevan family was fun. It was always Mrs. Bevan. Then as we all got older and l joined the Legion Ladies Auxiliary and played darts I would still say Mrs. Bevan that's just how it was until your mom said Judy just call me Ruth. It took some getting used to but Ruth it was, a great lady with a heart of gold enjoyed her as a neighbor and learning the ropes from her in the kitchen at the Legion. Rest in Peace Ruth and look up those neighbors from 199 Blake St.
