Ruth Marie Attaway

January 3, 1929July 31, 2013

ATTAWAY, Ruth M., 84, went home to be with the Lord, July 31, 2013. She was born in Toledo, Ohio, to the late Herman and Selma (Lay) Heimlicher. Ruth was a quiet, humble, yet diligent worker in whatever she felt God called her to do. All through the years, wherever she went to church, one of her passions was teaching Sunday school. But above all her activities, family came first. She was, indeed a loving and caring wife and mother. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Kenneth; her two sons, Mark and David and his wife, Yuko. She will be sorely missed by them. A viewing will be Tuesday, August 6, 2013 from 10:30 to 11:00 am, with the Funeral Service to follow, at First Baptist Church of Pompano, 138 NE 1st Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33066. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the ministry of the church will be great appreciated.

Ken, Mark & David,

You have our sympathy in the loss of your wife and Mother. Growing up, Ree and I were both only children, so I looked up to her as a big sister. She always let me do things with her and her friends. I'm sure they would have liked it better if I weren't there. I wanted to dress like her in the clothes that were the current fad. I am so thankful that she was such a wonderful example of a Godly Christian lady. I know that you will miss her greatly, but you have the assurance that she is in heaven and we will see her again.
