Ruth was an activity director and later a Dietary manager at the Tunica Convalescent Center until she retired . She was a faithful member of the Tabernacle of Praise and Worship for many years but more than that, she faithfully followed the Lord whom she loved passionately her whole life.

Ruth was the most amazing mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great  grandmother. She loved with her whole heart. She was known for her sweet spirit, her servant’s heart, her genuine meek disposition and her strong faith. She exemplified the love of God and enriched the lives of all that knew her. She loved singing, laughing, cooking, and spending time with her family. She was so much fun and full of life, grace and beauty. To say that she will be missed is an understatement but we know she is singing , dancing  and laughing in Heaven with her Lord and those who have been waiting for her.
