Meet the Mansfield District Director

I am Barbara (Barb) Ruhe and I am treasurer of Crestline Patio Gardeners.  I have been a member of Crestline Patio Gardeners for 48 years.  I served several terms as President and have currently been treasurer for 6 years.  I enjoy flower arranging and gardening for fun.

My husband Albert (Bert) and I have been married for 48 years and we have three sons (one deceased) and four grandchildren.  I was very involved with my sons as they grew up.  I was involved in PTA, Boy Scouts, Booster’s Club, Football Mothers, swimming, baseball, football, track and basketball programs.  My husband and I currently follow our grandchildren as they play soccer, swim and play baseball.  I also help babysit the grandchildren during the summer.

I worked for Parr Insurance Agency for 33 years as a secretary and agent.  I still am a licensed agent, but retired in 2008.

I currently serve on the Crestline Tree Commission, am a life member of VFW, president of Marketeers Investment Club, secretary of Hutson Scholarship Fund and enjoy being in Crestline Patio Gardeners.

I look forward to serving the Mansfield District as their Director.
