Ruth Montgomery Jackson


      Ruth has published the first of a series of children's books based on her years of working with children as a speech pathologist.

      A goal to have this book published by her 100th birthday was met.  The proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Amador Community Foundation, to benefit children's education.  

      Ruth was the director of speech, language and hearing for the Palo Alto Unified School District and conducted lectures and workshops on speech and language for colleges and professional organizations.  Her career in this field was ground-breaking as was her approach to teaching deaf children how to speak, not just to use sign language.

      Although not born in Amador County, Ruth quickly became involved in the community after moving here in 1993.  She is a member of the Sutter Creek Woman's Club, the Progressive Women's Committee and the Friends of the Amador County Library.     

      Ruth's daughter, Andra Fuller, who passed away from breast cancer three years ago, and grandson, Christopher Fuller, both are well known teachers in the Amador County school system.
