Ruth Mallory was a humble, kind and compassionate woman, having genuine care for her family and friends. Mamma
was so patient that she literally never got angry. She loved working with her hands, doing beautiful stitchery and even
making a lot of our clothes. She had the gift of music and loved singing and playing, especially in churches all around the place with Daddy.
A sincere Christian woman, Mamma supported her husband through all kinds of times, always encouraging and helping. With seven children, and two of her sister's, she had to prepare many large meals and was a wonderful cook, often feeding more than our own family, as it seemed we always had company; relatives, people from the church and other friends.
