Ruth Haring family
United States of America

Dear Haring Family,

It is with deepest sadness that we learnt of the passing away of our friend and colleague Mrs. Ruth Haring.

Mrs. Haring was a Woman International Master who has represented USA in five Chess Olympiads. She was also FIDE Zonal President, member of the FIDE Executive Board for seven years, member of the FIDE Ethics Commission and President of the US Chess Federation for five years.

Mrs. Haring loved the game passionately and she was a guiding light in the effort to propagate the game of chess not only in the American Continent but in all of FIDE.

She gave us her best in the services of FIDE and we shall miss her dearly.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

Yours sincerely,

Arkady Dvorkovich
FIDE President
