Ruth, known by many as “Nana Ruth”, was simply a light to everyone who knew her. She devoted her entire life as a homemaker, caring for her family. Many might would speak about her delicious cooking or her infectious smile but her calm and loving temperament will be most remembered by our family. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. Nanna Ruth passed away quietly and peacefully in her bed. She was a tremendous blessing to us and to all who knew her. I would like to publicly thank the Lord for his strength during her sickness and his mercy during her passing. I know it’s not goodbye but see you later. She was greeted by a whole host of loved ones and most of all by her Lord and Savior. We loved her dearly! Pallbearers are Ronnie Smith, Clint Spicer, Jason Guy, Colby Hamner, Anthony Holmes and Chris Brown Honorary Pallbearers are her wonderful care givers Katelyn and Marla Grace Sanford, her special son in law Gary Sanford, Melissa Parson , Jane Freeman, Hospice of West Alabama and Encompass home health care. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Hospice of West Alabama.
