12083710_10206451729109689_1073825924_nRuth Ellen, 91, passed away on October 5th. Back in the early radio days, Ruth Ellen often sang with the Gang on soprano or alto. This was long before The Gang began touring in the early fifties.

Ruth Ellen sang on the first concerts for Wally Fowler, as Anna had just had a son, Greg Gordon. In the late ’70’s Ruth Ellen began recording and touring with the Gang through 1989. She came back in 1994, touring, and recording again.

She was a wonderful singer, and the fans loved her. She loved her fans as well, and loved her work with the CWG. Please keep the family in your prayers.
