Ruth was a homemaker and enjoyed spending time in her flower garden. When you visited Ruth at her home you were almost certain to get a personal tour and clippings from her garden. She was a Christian and a member of Macedonia Church where she enjoyed singing hymns and had many friends.

At Ruth’s request, cremation will be honored with no service. Family and friends will gather at a later date to celebrate her life.
