Oh how we all loved Mrs. Ruth! She was such a sweet soul. Mrs. Ruth gave with her heart to all. She has stood all day and rolled out fried pies for fundraisers at Central Baptist Church in Ashdown, she cooked many meals to share with others! She and Mr. Harold were a true blessing to all who knew them. May you find comfort from the memories and peace in your hearts knowing she lived her life well for Jesus.
