Mrs. Ruth spent her time sitting on her front porch with her husband, Dave, just rocking the time away, all the while talking on the telephone. When she was able, she would visit the sick and go shopping, she always enjoyed dressing up with her hats and strolling around town. Mrs. Ruth Fawley will truly be missed by her family and friends.
