Ruth Carolyn Talton was born on October 27, 1938 to the late Reginald and Effie Talton. She accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of Fifth St. Baptist Church.

Ruth was a devoted worker at Kentucky Telco – which is now Transend – where she retired after 27 years of service. She also worked at Kroger for 15 years. She graduated from Central high School. Ruth was a die-hard UofL fan, loved to go out to eat and enjoyed her family. There isn’t a person she met that she didn’t help and love!

She was called home on the morning of February 8, 2021. She was greeted at the gates by her mother and father.
