Wedith Ruth DeLord was born August 7, 1931 in Silo, Oklahoma. She went to be with the Lord three days after reaching the great milestone of her 86th birthday, on August 10, 2017 in Mesquite, Texas.

Ruth loved to live her life. She pursued hobbies and activities that kept her active and moving, such as dancing and swimming. She also loved doing anything where she could be outdoors, but she especially loved gardening. Ruth had long and fulfilling career with Southwestern Bell Telephone, but after 27 years in telecommunications, Ruth made the decision to retire so she could focus on her most important job - that of a loving Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, for she loved and was devoted to her family most of all. Ruth has gifted us, her family, with so many wonderful memories, and life lessons, that we know her love will live on in us.

Ruth is survived by her sons, Carl Baker and wife Marie, and Kenneth Baker and wife Michele; grandchildren, Brian Baker and husband Peter, Kevin Baker, Valerie Baker, Michael Baker, and Carrie Busse and husband David; great-grandchildren, Kailey, Preston, Logan, Cason, and Kacie; as well as many extended family members.

Funeral Services to celebrate Ruth's life will be held Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 2:00 P.M. at Grove Hill Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Grove Hill Memorial Park.
