Ruth Ann Walden Rice, was a loving person, she devoted her life to Jesus. She and her family was
members of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church, and set just a few pews from us. Her loving Mom Mrs. Walden, her Husband Tommy, and all her family usually attended Church every Sun and she served many hours in different organizations within the Church. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones and many, many more. She is now with her Lord and Savior Jesus, and her hurt and pains are gone, she is looking down on all her family and saying I feel great and awaiting to see you all in the future. Condolences to all the Rice, Family, Relatives and Friends. God Bless All and Keep You All Safe. RIP RUTH ANN.

Wanted you to know how much I loved Ruth Ann. I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t part of my life. Her smile and laughter was always a gift. She was my strongest supporter when I needed and even when I didn’t know. She had a way of getting others to “volunteer “ for things we thought we didn’t want to do. She loved the Lord and her church. Her greatest loves her family and the love of her life Tom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please know how much you are all loved.
