Ruth (Ruthy) Gudaitis was diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) on January 30, 2019, and passed away on March 28, 2019.
CJD is a fatal, rapidly progressing prion disease. Currently, there is no cure or treatment to combat or at the very least, slow the disease. Ruth’s family and friends are still at a loss for words.
Ruth was known for being extremely loving, thoughtful and kind. She was a key connector and communicator in various community groups and was deeply devoted to her family, friends and the community.
