Mary was a woman of many qualities, she was feisty, funny, bold the queen of sass and a hoot to anyone that met her. She was honest, caring, tender and a mother full of nothing but love for her family. She enjoyed BBQ’s and spoiling her family with her cooking. Ruth loved to wheel and deal, was a tenacious bargain hunter who loved the thrill of finding a good deal and getting up early on Saturdays to hit every garage sale in the county. She was a hard worker and for many years she owned a thrift store called “Ruth’s Bargain Spot” and a furniture store in downtown Kirksville. Ruth believed you should work hard and play harder so whenever time allowed, she did just that. She loved gambling, taking trips to the casinos, playing cards and yelling BINGO. She enjoyed the outdoors, deer hunting, trap shooting and letting the guys know that she could out shoot most of them. Ruth was always there for her family, loved to collect angels and will now forever be her family’s guardian angel.
