Joe and I want to share that his mom, Ruth Esther Hammond Beckham, passed away on June 23, 2020. She died of Covid. It took her life in 4 day. 4 Days.
She was a Rhode Islander and her roots are tied to Hammond Hill and the snuff mill at the Gilbert Stuart birthplace in Saunderstown. She was a happy person, with a good sense of humor and an easy smile. I loved hearing her stories about life as a young girl here during the Great Depression. We just celebrated her 90th birthday.
