Ruth spent most of her life as a homemaker, but she worked at J.C. Penny’s after her husband passed until she retired in the early 2000s. She enjoyed cooking southern family recipes, shopping, and traveling to the N.C. mountains and beaches. She had a compassionate heart for animals and also her friends. Christmas brought her the most joy when she could cook and gather her family around her.
