Ruth Wharram.

I just got an email from Hanneke saying that "Ruth Wharram has passed away Sept 4 at theage of 92 at home in Devoran. Her health had been failing over the last two years after a stroke the day after a fantastic 90th Birthday party."
Hanneke goes on to say that Ruth met James in 1951 and Hanneke met Ruth in 1967 and shared her life with James and Ruth since 1973.
Ruth was a great navigator, sailor, and supported James in his designs and worked the office at James Wharram Designs for many years. She was great at helping builders like Nev and I when we ran into difficulties beyond the mere technical aspects of construction. Her warm support in person and over the phone were a major assist to Nev and I during the years of our build on Peace IV when the entire design team often came for a visit, phoned, or wrote many, many kind emails.
We have often said how much Nev and I adore Ruth. Her passing will never change that because love continues on and on.

Email sent to a couple on the Wharram builders and friends website.
