Ruth Lewis recently turned 95 April 18, and her daughters and the staff at the Renaissance on Peachtree, where she and her husband Ken live, found a way for the family to wish her a happy birthday. The staff brought them out onto a second-story balcony. Down below, her three daughters, Judi Schnitzer, Sue Heavlin and Carol Salmons, gathered with two sons-in-law, three of her five grandchildren and five of her great-grandchildren and cheered and serenaded Ruth with “Happy Birthday.”
Ruth and Ken have been married 73 years. Ken turned 96 three days earlier. They moved to the Renaissance a little over a year ago after living in Roswell for 15 years. They moved to Atlanta from Philadelphia to join two daughters, a son-in-law and four of their grandchildren.
