It is with a heavy heart that we received the news from Bob and Cathy Richardson that Ruth Burton of Hillsboro, Ohio and Moss Bank Beagles, passed away on February 8, 2019 after a long courageous battle with liver cancer. Ruth was the wife of the late Jim Burton and they had two sons, Mark and Stephen. Ruth had previously sold the farm and lived in a condo by her boys. Ruth and Jim were quite the team in their day and they won many awards through the years. They covered the federations and license trials for years and years. They were definitely a force to reckon with before age and health no longer allowed them the freedom to beagle. They saw a lot of country and made a lot of friends through their years of beagling in the North, South, East and West. Please keep their family and friends in your prayers. As they were together here on earth; they are together again, as they fly free from their pain and suffering. We can all cherish the memories as they live on in our hearts through all those years of special times and the stories that are still being told today. Rest In Peace and Soar With The Eagles!
