OBITUARY

Ruth Evelyn (Liddell) Langford

February 25, 1921May 18, 2020

Remembering Ruth, my beautiful grandmother. In her 99th year toward heaven, on May 18, 2020, Ruth Evelyn Liddell Langford left her large and grieving family in a state of wonder for the life and joy she brought to them. The youngest of five children, Ruth was born in 1921 in Marietta, Oklahoma, to John C. and Mattie Liddell with whom she will be laid to rest in Lakeview Cemetery. The last years of her life are laid out before us like a Christmas feast, rich and bountiful. Ruth had the constant devotion of her granddaughter Shannon and her great grandsons Max and Alex, as well as the love of her two children, Bobby and Elaine.

Ruth blessed four generations of her kith and kin with love. When she sang publicly for the last time with a country and western band at her nephew’s birthday party in December of 2019, the lyrics of that song: “I’m right back where I’ve always really been” in her beautiful contralto voice brought a thunderous applause. This beautiful, talented, selfless woman, who in the poet Whitman’s words had “a lovely and soothing death,” remains a sublime mystery. She has been wafted home, yet she remains moored in our hearts forever.

Thank you Peggy Gardner , Ruth’s beautiful loving niece, for helping write this.

Ruth's Memorial service is set for June 20th at the home of Shannon and Peter Ullrich. Sorry, but due to Covid 19, it will only be family at this time. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Ruth's name to a favorite family non-profit charity; Skydog Ranch @www.skydogranch.org

Ruth loved all of Gods animals. Her Niece Peggy even helped Ruth write a beautiful children’s book that featured many of Ruth’s favorite pets. And Peggy’s daughter Morgan drew beautiful photos of the animals in the book. Many generations of Ruth’s kin will cherish this book.
