Ruth Ann Grimming, nee Rogers, 72, of Belleville, passed away peacefully on July 31, 2019. Ruth was born November 19, 1946, in East St. Louis. She married Roger Grimming on Oct. 16, 1980. He preceded her in death on June, 7, 2003. Ruth worked hard her entire life to raise her three children. She worked as a waitress and hostess for Bel Air Bowl and Fishers Restaurant. She then worked as a receptionist for Associated Dental Care until she retired. Ruth loved her vacation homes in Florida and Lake of the Ozarks. She loved a good cup of coffee, especially with her life long friend Judy Sutterfield, with whom she would share many laughs, stories, and a love of God. Ruth was also preceded in death by her parents James and Geneva Rogers and a brother James "Jimmy" Rogers. She is survived by her children Ronald (Scott) Kelly of Belleville, Randy (Sandy) Kelly of Belleville and Rhonda Kelly (Tommy) of Fairview Heights; five grandchildren, Joshua Kelly, Matthew Kelly, Amanda Kelly, Brittany Ann Kelly and Drew Kelly; and great-grandchildren Brody and Avery; a step son, Roger (Kim) Grimming and daughter Maddie of Boca Raton, Fla., and an extensive group of family and friends. Ruth loved nothing more than being with her family playing some scratchers and watching Cardinal baseball. She was always there to help anyone, even if it was just to listen. She was loved by many and will be missed greatly. A special thanks to Shante Washington for being a loving friend to Mom; and to Sharon Robert, Ruth's personal Cardinals commentator and loving "sister." A prayer service will be held at 7 pm. Aug. 6, at Valhalla Funeral Home, 3412 Frank Scott Parkway West in Belleville. A funeral service will be held at 9:30 am Aug. 7, in the funeral home chapel. Interment will follow in Valhalla Cemetery.
