Such sweet memories of bygone times when we were in high school and beyond. I treasure the many phone calls from last year and the times we got to visit thru the years. May you rest in God's perfect peace.

Ruth Ann never met a stranger. She was my first mother-in-law and she always loved on me as if I were her own. I will miss her shining spirit and stories of yesteryear. She was a true prayer warrior and loved the Lord with all her might. I will forever be reminded of her favorite saying "It'll all be alright" whenever things weren't. Positive, Confident, and Carefree is how I will always remember her. Thank you for leaving the best impression of how a person should live. Love you, Ruth Ann, you were my first.

Ruth Ann always had a welcoming smile and a big hug every time I ever saw her. She loved her children, grandchildren and sisters and brothers, some who have preceded her with all her heart. She will be missed by family and friends every day, but she is in good company now with all her family who welcomed her to Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with her sons, grandchildren, Jimmy and Betty, Sue, and her niece and nephews. 🙏🏻❤️
