I will always remember Ruth as a kind and Christian person who was always there for my brother Bill Leavell. She was always concerned about all of my brother's family and she knew verses from the bible that I didn't know. I will truly miss her and she was a caring sister-in-law. I know you are at peace forever.

So much good to say about my sweet aunt Ruth. She had a personality with so much laughter and love. She will be one of my favorite memories in my life. She is now with our Lord and totally
healed from her health issues she had to endure here on Planet Earth. Love you Aunt Jimmie always. Elva
