Ruth was born Dec. 4, 1932, in Kansas. She worked at Rexall Drug Store and Scripture Supply. Ruth was a member of Pueblo First Church of the Nazarene and she was a volunteer for CASA. (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
Ruth enjoyed family vacations and gatherings, attending church, small Bible study and prayer groups, singing in the church choir and ensembles. Fun loving and always young at heart, Ruth occasionally liked to “break the rules” due to her adventurous and stubborn spirit. Because of her strong faith in Jesus Christ, she was able to respect and demonstrate love to her family and everyone she came along side of. She was a godly woman, a prayer warrior and a true example of what a believer in Jesus Christ should BE!
Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial service, 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 3, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Her final resting place will eventually be next to her husband of 66 years at Pikes Peak National Cemetery.
