In Loving Memory
Our friend and LEC instructor Ruth T. Nienhaus passed away on February 9, 2023, at her home in Tampa, Florida, surrounded by family and her beloved dogs. She was 85 years old. Ruth began her art career at the University of Georgia. She taught art at Town and Country Elementary School and East Bay High School until 1977. She then taught adult art classes through the Hillsborough County school system and the Life Enrichment Center before retiring to pursue her painting full time.
