As a young child Mrs. Ruth was able to travel and live in multiple areas due to her father being in the military. Her children fondly remember her making sure they saw where she graduated from high school when they went on a trip to Denver. Ruth and her husband enjoyed riding horses together and playing cards. Ruth also enjoyed cross-stitching, collecting porcelain dolls, and reading all things John Grisham. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints. One of the most enjoyable things that filled her life was teaching the children about her Lord during Sunday School. Ruth will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Ruth is survived by her two children, John “Robby” (Salena) Henderson and Cheryl (Larry) Rhynes, both of Oxford; stepson, Shane (Lyla) Prather, of Honolulu, HI; seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren; and one brother, Dennis Karr, of Oxford.
