Ruth Carlene (Cohee) Ruffins, age 79 of Lewisville, Texas passed away May 04, 2019. Ruth Carlene was born to the late Royce Cohee and Laura McGee of the Chickasaw Nation on March 18, 1940 in Springer, Oklahoma. She was called into the family of God early in life when she was baptized at Jehovah Baptist Church. She was later confirmed at St Matthew Lutheran Church (LC-MS) in St Louis, Missouri; where she married the late James Ruffins and raised three sons, John Eric, Cliff Anthony and Richard Elliott.

Ruth made her home in St Louis for more than 46 years. She retired from a successful administrative leadership career with Christian Northeast Hospital. Ruth served her church and community devotedly. She later returned to Ardmore, Oklahoma and became a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. Her faith was nurtured and strengthened through faithful worship and service to others. Left to cherish her memory and the blessing that she was to them are her sons John (Wanda), Cliff (Juanita), Richard (Amirah) and their children Jonathan, Brooke, Richard Jr, Jamie, Samantha, Janae`, Omari, and Amirah; and great grandchildren: Eric James and Elishah Javon. Ruth was also loved by three brothers: Carson, Edward and Travis; two sisters: Artha Mae and Verlene; as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and closest of friends.

Ruth's mortal remains will be laid to rest at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St Louis, Missouri until the great day of the resurrection of all flesh.  Any flowers please send to Archway Memorial Chapel in Hazelwood, MO.  www.archwaychapel.com
