Sorry to hear about the passing of Ruth. I met her in Blythe Ca, at the bank where she made her weekly deposits. She was the sweetest most caring lady I knew. We always had the best conversations, she prayed with me plenty of times. I lost contact with her after she moved back to Ohio, but I thought of her often. May she rest in peace. 🙏❤

Oh how I loved Ruth Ann. She was a wonderful mentor and friend. I enjoyed our talks and time of prayer. I'm grateful for all the time we had together. My first ministry work was with her. She would pick me up when I was just a child and we would go to the nursing home. I played hymns on the piano and she would preach. I can picture the smile on her face as she walks around Heaven. Love you Ruth and I'll see you again someday.

Ruth Wood was a wonderful woman of God. Very sincere and compassionate. We met her when we moved to Blythe. My kidney's failed, we would go see pastor wood and she would pray over me like a house of fire, then when my wife got sick and nearly died she was there to lay hands on her and pray the prayer of faith once again. We love you sister wood and look forward to seeing you again someday. Gene and Sara Andrew
