To my Mom - I miss talking with you every day. I missed you singing happy birthday to me last week. I miss you so very much. It is so nice to see all the wonderful words your lovely friends have shared with me. You were loved by all!

Barb Curran of Geraldine, NZ wrote:

If you are lucky, you have, as a child, a second family. A house beyond yours where you know where the forks are and where to put the towels. For me that was 2 South Washington Street. Rue (who I still want to call Mrs Siegel, even at 53 years old...) was that other mother. She taught me piano, and to love music. She asked me to usher for shows, so I got to see Camelot and others. She brought me to Deep Valley, the Shire and Narnia with books she loaned me. Rue was a tower of strength for my mom before she died and an anchor in the storms of my teenage years. She was a special part of my childhood and remains so now. Rue Siegel, Kia hora te marino, kia whakapapa ponamu te moana, kia tere te kārohirohi i mua i to huarahi. (May the calm be widespread. May the sea glisten like greenstone, may the shimmering light guide you one your journey.

So sorry to happen on to this to day. Rue and Carl were a very big part of our living in Norton MA. We knew each of the children , Adam was our paperboy and my John and Carl burned up the tennis courts at 6 AM for a number of years ..Rue and I did League of a woman voters and many other fun things together. I am also sorry to read that Carl is no longer with us. Great Memories of a wonderful family . Love, Carol and John Dromgoole

My daughter Jennifer was fortunate to be a part of the Lion Hearts children's choir at St Marks. Rue worked with these children and they loved her enthusiasm and music knowledge. She also directed several Xmas pageants which both of my children participated in. We appreciate her being a part of our lives. May she rest in peace with Carl and Adam.

Psalm 147:3... He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. May you know that many souls quietly, yet lovingly stand with you, as you endure this most painful loss. I pray that your aching hearts may take some comfort from our genuine care for all of you.

I always liked Rue a lot.she was fun to be with. I called her and left a message on her phone. This is very sad.

What a beautiful picture of Rue. My sympathy goes out to her entire family. Rue was so admired as she fought her battle with so much dignity and strength. She will be sorely missed by me and so many others. God rest your soul, Rue. Love you. Meg and Jim

I took piano lessons for many years from Rue along with my brother and sister. She was so patient and kind as a teacher and taught me a love for music. She loved sharing stories of her children and grandchildren with us, and showing us pictures! Rue taught me how to be brave, get up in front of a crowd and play which is a lesson that has stuck with me to this day. She was always so hospitable and I enjoyed waiting in the living room with the tube TV while my sister finished her lesson. The house always felt like such a home and we were always so welcomed by Rue and Carl.

Rev. Judith Davis of Brevard, NC wrote:

Rue was a wonderful parishioner when I was rector of Christ Church in Harwich Port. She was a great volunteer, musician, vestry member, kind and generous friend. I miss knowing she's there already. A great loss for the Church. I loved her so much. Judith+
