Ruth believed in our lord Jesus Christ. She was a kind, loving and giving person. She has a great sense of humor, kept us all laughing with her stories and funny antics. She could remember every old saying and remembered things about her sisters that even they could not remember. She could fix anything that needed fixing, or would (anyhow) take it a part. Even after losing a leg, she mowed and raked her yard, sitting sideways on her lawnmower. She liked to Clean and cook, made her special carrot cake at most of our get-togethers. She is greatly loved and missed by her family and friends

Services will be 2:00pm Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at the Clary Funeral Home, Mammoth Spring, AR with Bro. Richard Todd officiating. Interment will be in the Old Bethel Cemetery.
