She was born September 23, 1923 in Lexington, TX to Neva Estelle Thomas and John Frank Yeager. She later attended school in League City, TX.

She was a charter member of Texas Avenue Baptist Church in League City, serving as the church librarian for many years. She moved to Victoria in 2008 and attended Northside Baptist Church.

To the family,
Ruth was so loved by all, especially by those at Texas Ave. Baptist Church. My children grew up there and the first place they'd run to was the church library because they knew Ms. Ruth would be there with candy and good books. She was such a good example of a Godly woman.
Her grandkids were her pride & joy and she was always talking about them and their current accomplishments. I felt like I knew them all by the times she spent talking about them. She was so very proud of all of you. Her children were also a frequent subject and all their successes. Ruth's life was one well lived and now she can rest in peace. I am confident she was greeted by Jesus and told, "Well done thou good & faithful servant..."
Prayers of comfort and grace throughout this time and for all the new normals you will endure. Philippians 1:6 Julie & Colleen Freeman.

Lynn, I wish you comfort during the initial loss of your Mother. As time continues on, your reflections of Her will brighten your day and always warm your heart. I know this as with my Mother's passing 10 years ago. Please take care of yourself and your family and hopefully we will see each other again in the near future.
Love,
Mary Steele

I have many fond childhood memories of Ruth and our “Kemah Cousins”.
She was a dear lady. One my mother loved very much. I remember our moms planning family get togethers at Aunt Isabel and Uncle Everett’s home. I remember the Christmas party each year at Aunt Annie’s. The picnics on the creek at Margaret Johnson’s place. We always had lots of family fun. Even though we are separated by miles between us, I will always hold you three close to my heart and cherish the memories.
Love,
Linda
