Mrs. Woodruff was a wonderful person and a wonderful teacher. Mrs. Woodruff was our senior advisor. As our advisor she told me these words of advice "YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO - but do it WELL". I have carried these words with me always in my heart. Mrs. Woodruff cared for all of us. We cared and loved Mrs. Woodruff. My heart and prayers for her family. Mrs. Woodruff will be missed.

Your mother was more than a teacher, asst. principal, mother of one our dearest friends, she was "Mrs. Woodruff", a friend who touch so many lives in so many ways, all of them for the better. And a darn good cook too! Our deepest sympathies to you and the Woodruff family.

Woody, your parents made life at St. John's so sweet for me and my children. Your dad was such a fun-loving guy and your mother was so perceptive and kind. I know you miss them every day--my condolences are with you. Now Ben and Ruth are together, with your brother, in the Larger Life.

Ruth was a very friendly and gracious friend. I got to know both her and Ben when we were on the music committee when my children were in the children's choir.
Thank you ruth for your great smile.

Mrs. Woodruff was a lovely and gracious lady and I am sorry to learn of her passing. As a student at Dreher from 1970 to 74 she was always kind, pleasant and gracious to me. She made going to school each day a better experience than it otherwise would have been. I extend my sympathy to her son, Ben and to the entire family.
