My heart and sympathy to all of Ruth’s family at this sad time. Myra spoke so highly and with such love for her mother that I felt what a great mom she was to all of her children, and a loving grandma. I wish the family the comfort that comes from their many great memories of this loving and giving woman. So happy she made it to Virginia once, and we could share time together.
My Grandma Ruth, I will miss her greatly.
Her laugh. To this day, I still think about her laugh. It was joyous. I swear you could hear it though her entire house, possibly a few blocks away. It didn’t take much to set her off. She was quick to laugh, and she was always up for someone telling a story.
Whether you cleaned your plate, behaved well, or helped out around the house as expected, you would always hear that sentence. I loved it. I still hear her say it in my head when my kids finish their plate at dinner.
I remember, the last time we were together, she stopped me, looked me in the eye, and made sure to tell me, “I love you, and I’m just so proud of you.” She did that every time we saw each other.
She was proud of all of her family. The good, the bad, all of it.
We are proud of her and will miss her greatly.
Grandma Ruth would tell us how proud she was of us. Well, I’m proud of her and her wondrous life.
I’m proud to know that I’m a descendant of such a fantastic woman.
I’m also thankful. Whether it be my first experience with okra, an embroidered sock monkey, or a picture of us at my graduation in St Louis.
Most of all, to easily bring to mind her warmth and hear her smile.
We will miss you, Grandma Ruth.
So sorry to hear of the loss of Aunt Ruth. I always enjoyed her visits to Alabama. She was always a sweet and loving person.
Grandma Ruth was a wonderful woman. She was a great mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friends to many. She had so many loved ones who cared for her deeply and she will be sincerely missed by all that knew her. There was no one like her and heaven has gained an angel in Grandma Ruth.
Love you and miss you dearly Grandma, as I know you’ll keep a watchful eye over us all up above.
Rest in peace.
A wonderful woman! I always appreciated her friendly “hello” whenever I was at church!!
