They enjoyed yard sales, cooking, square dancing, and being with their children and extended family. She was an administrative assistant in the Microbiology/Infection Control Department at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. After 21 years of dedication and service, she retired in May 2006.

Ruth professed her life to Christ at an early age. She loved to read her bible, praying for and with others, spending time with family, laughing and always wearing a smile on her face. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother and friend, always thinking of others first. “To know her was to love her”.
