    In addition to her husband and parents, Ruth was predeceased by daughter-in-law, Carole Henderson; brothers, Raymond Sowers, Eugene Sowers, Eldon Sowers, and Harold Sowers; sister, Louise Thurston; sisters-in-law, Wylodeen and Edna Sowers; and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Alvin (Anne) Arledge, Harold (Phyllis) Tatman, Gene (Rebecca) Tatman, Marjorie Salyers, Ray Tatman, Marcella (Ronnie) Parker, Audrey (Gary) Brown, and Janet (Carl) Hedges.
