Acknowledging the death of a Bee contributor

October 11, 2013 

Mary Ruggieri, 92, who passed away Sunday, was a longtime Modestan and a regular contributor to the Our Turn column. She shared her thoughts on a wide range of topics, from the misuse of the English language – that one got a lot of attention – to appreciating silence and the beds of our lives. She had lived in Modesto since 1956.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
