Our sweet momma and granny left this earth to live eternally with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Oh, happy day for her, but we will always miss her.
She was small in stature but mighty in love, and her family was her life. She loved cooking our favorite meals and taking care of us; she just wanted us to be with her.
Ruth lived her last three-plus years at Meadowbrook Place; she liked playing Bingo, listening to the musicians that came to play for the residents, going to church and Bible study.
