Born on March 9, 1934 to the late Paul L. Davidson, Sr. and Marie Electa Navarro Davidson, Ruth was one of three children. Ruth was a kind and loving woman who dedicated her life so the service of others. She was passionate, selfless, and kind to all those she crossed paths with. In her mid-forties, Ruth went to school for nursing and became an LPN. She worked for 25 years in the medical field taking care of those in need. After her retirement, Ruth would often volunteer at hospitals or wherever she was needed.

When not serving others, Ruth dedicated her time and love to her family. She was perfectly content when they were all together, whether it was traveling the country or sharing a meal. They shared many memorable times together. She immersed herself in her family and loved every waking minute of being with them. Aside from her life of service and wonderful family, Ruth also enjoyed sewing, cooking, and crocheting. She will be forever remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend to all.

She is survived by her five children, Ted Lee McIntyre, II. and wife Antoinette of New Iberia, Kerry Elizabeth M. Schexnayder and husband Nolan of Jeanerette, David Michael McIntyre and wife Malinda of Lynnville, TN, Blake Steven McIntyre of Virginia, and Lisa Marie M. Wheeler and husband Barry of Grovetown, GA; sister-in-law, Pat Davidson; nine grandchildren; twenty great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 1\2 years, Ted McIntyre, Sr.; parents, Paul L. Davidson, Sr. and Marie Electa Navarro Davidson; brothers, Rodney Davidson and Paul Lawrence Davidson, Jr.; and sister-in-law Kathleen Davidson.

The family would like to thank Traditions Grace Hospice Care and the ICU staff at Iberia Medical Center for their kind and compassionate care.

We can only imagine how happy Mr. McIntyre must be to have his beloved wife with him once again. There must be some beautiful music sounding in heaven with her now there.

She was such a lovely person. She will be so missed by all of her loving family and her many, many friends.

May God grant calm and peace to each loved one left behind.

Both Ruth and Ted were wonderful and loving friends. We knew them when they lived in Augusta, Ga. They were just like family to all my family. They came to everything we celebrated, weddings and birthdays. My family and I loved them both so very much, we missed them when they went back to LA. but kept in contact with many phone calls.
My deepest sympathy to all the family. May God give you all peace and comfort in your loss of a sweet lady. God's Blessings to you all.

Miss Ruth was my friend, but more than that she was my second momma. I loved her dearly. She was always kind and compassionate and loving. She was the epitome of a true Southern lady. She left me a legacy of love. Rest in peace, Miss Ruth.
