What a special person Mrs. Annie Ruth was. I always enjoyed spending time with her years ago when we moved to the community of Archer Lodge and attended White Oak - we would visit all the shut ins from the church. I learned so much from her during our visits. Praise be to God for the Christian woman, mother, grandmother, great grandmother that your family was blessed with! Please know Clay and I will be praying for y'all during this journey of life without her, prayers for healing your hearts, peace and comfort in the days and weeks to come!! Much love, hugs and prayers! Hope

My family and I dearly loved that little woman. She was always happy and kind and funny. She was always willing to help where ever she could and I never saw her mad. I always wished I could talk as fast as she could! There will only be one "Miss Annie Ruth." My prayers are with you - Martha and Nancy and all the family. I'm honored to have been a small part in her life and so glad I knew her.

Granny! What a super special lady. Her voice, her smile, the BISCUITS! She always made me feel 100% apart of the family. I loved seeing her always. It is so sad to see a beautiful legacy of a woman gone from this earth, but wow what she is seeing now in the pearly gates of heaven. It was an honor to be a part of a little piece of her life. She will be missed and I am praying for Nancy, Martha, and all of the family. Love y’all.

Martha and Nancy, please accept my sincerest sympathy during this difficult time. Your mother was an absolute joy and a true treasure to know. She fought a good fight and she kept her faith. God has gained an extraordinary angel in His kingdom. She will be missed.

I always loved Aunt Annie Ruth and remember all the great times when I visited her home and the phone calls in recent years. I remember the fun we had when she came to visit my Mom when she was sick. Annie Ruth was a wonderful cook and we enjoyed many meals that she prepared. This was a small example of the love and care she gave to family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family and especially Martha Ann and Nancy Ruth. We have lost a wonderful lady who loved God and her family. She was always ready to tell you about Jesus and her family. She will be missed by all who knew her.
May the LORD bless you and keep you. May the LORD cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you May the LORD lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace.
With Love and Sympathy

I considered Annie Ruth an angel here on earth. She always had a smile and kind words. She loved the the Lord, family, friends and baseball. I know her heavenly family and friends received her with open arms! You will be missed but what wonderful memories you left us all.
