Ruth was a member of Olivet Baptist Church for 56 years where she served in many areas from caring for the nursery babies to teaching elementary aged children in Sunday School. Ruth was employed as a daycare center cook for many of her working years. She also operated her own janitorial business for several years. Ruth’s family was her greatest source of joy. In addition to spending time with her family, she enjoyed crocheting and collecting Elvis Presley memorabilia. Ruth was a wonderful cook and baker, as many in attendance can and will attest. As many can bear witness to, Ruth never met a stranger and was always willing to give and share what she had to help anyone else in need. Ruth was the epitome of unconditional love. She was blessed with a large, loving family and was cherished by everyone and will be missed by all.
