Ruth LaVerne Speed Hunt passed away on April 11, 2017. She was 85 years old.

Ruth was born in Waco, Texas in September 1931. She graduated from high school in the Houston area, and worked at an oil company in Houston afterwards. During that time, she met and married her husband, Charles Madison Hunt. They were married at Texas Avenue Baptist Church in Houston on June 7, 1952. Soon thereafter, Ruth gave birth to her first child, Charles, which began her journey as a wonderful mother and full-time homemaker. Soon thereafter, their second son, Kerry and then their third and final son, Kyle were born.

Ruth loved to travel and had the opportunity to visit 46 different countries all around the world in her lifetime. Some of her amazing stops included the Taj Mahal, the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Coliseum, the Vatican in Rome, and many, many others. She was an avid reader, loved to sew, and was an accomplished baker. However, if you would ask her what her greatest achievement was, she would tell you it was her relationship with Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior.

Ruth is survived by her sons, Kim Hunt, Kerry Hunt and his wife Belinda, and Kyle Hunt and his wife Trena; grandchildren Lesley Hunt, Wade Hunt, Jenn Hunt Martin, Selina Hunt, Kyla Hunt Novak; sister-in-law Winona Speed; nephew Tracy Speed, and niece Kasandra Speed Roye.

Ruth will be missed by everyone who knew her.
