Ruth Minyard


Ruth leaves behind their daughter: Sharon; and their son: Gary. She rejoins their daughter, Cindy, who also has been awaiting Ruth’s arrival. Her five grandchildren each carry a beautiful set of memories of their lives shared with Ruth. Those grandchildren will continue to share memories with Ruth and Ernie’s 12 great-grandchildren.

Ruth blessed all the lives she touched. She always seemed to know what each person needed. She walked through life very close to her Lord. She served God in many callings including teaching Sunday School for ages from preschool through adults. In all of her service she acted with joy and a great amount of preparation.

Ruth will be missed by all of us, but her recent suffering is over, and she is now joyfully reunited with Ernie in God’s new blessings.

A memorial service will be held at Covenant United Methodist Church, 4410 Duval Rd., Austin, Texas, at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 19. Instead of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer’s Association or to your favorite charity.
