Ruth was a very loving, kind, and caring mother/grandmother. She was a very loved person from others than family. She loved with toughness and honesty that was from the bottom of her heart. She moved in with her parents and became their care taker for them; while doing so, she managed to work 40 hrs a week at AT&T and raising/worrying after two free spirited children. She loved her family more than anyone of us could image. Special thanks to April Fisher who took great care of Ruth. Thank you April Fisher! Ruth had a lot of nieces and nephews and special friends that she loved dearly.

Thanks to all of you for the love you have shown my mom and family. She also wanted to thank her doctors, Solomon, White, Hicks, Stoeckle, Tuono, and Goldschmidt along with the nurses 2nd floor at MRH. Per Ruth’s request please wear casual clothing to her service.

Memorial services will be conducted Friday, April 13, 2018 at 3:00 pm in the McCoy Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. John Tibbs officiating. The family will receive friends from 2 to 3 pm before the service at McCoy Funeral Home.
