PHOTOS: Ruth Williams Memorial Service at Plummer Park


Family, friends and city leaders came out to Plummer Park on Saturday to honor the life of one of West Hollywood’s founders, Ruth Williams. Here are some of their dedications:

“I hope that’s what we can take from Ruth — to make the city the best it can be.” — Abbe Land, former WeHo Councilmember

“She was dedicated to the most in need and the most unfortunate in our community – Steve Martin, former WeHo Councilmember

“If Ruth was here right now, she would say refund the police. We need our sheriffs. Keep public safety strong.” — WEHOville publisher – Larry Block

Her legacy is all everywhere, you look at those programs for all in need – Los Angeles County Tax Assessor and Former WeHo council member Jeffrey Prang

She didn’t leave any stone unturned to defend this community.

Disappointing& discouraging presentation by the City in a tribute to Ruth Williams. Crude set up with not a pot of flowers in sight.
