She was born May 7, 1918 in Union County, but lived most of her nearly 100 years in Charlotte, NC. She retired from the City of Charlotte Water Department over 30 years ago.
Ruth was predeceased by her parents, Walter Franklin Benton and Minnie Helms Benton, her seven brothers: Clinton, Beecher, Curtis, Glenn, Thurman, Aubrey, and Robert, and her husband of over 50 years, Edgar Eugene (Gene) Ball.
Ruth is survived by her daughters; Genie Ball of Charlotte, NC and Wanda Fisher (Andy) of Oak Island, NC; two grandchildren, Brad Fisher of Oak Island, NC and Erin Williams (Matt) of Johns Island, SC; and two great-grandsons, Drew Fisher of Oak Island, NC and Sullivan Williams of Johns Island, SC.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Ruth's church, Cornerstone Baptist Church Building Fund, 8947 Albemarle Road, Charlotte, NC 28227.
The family would like to thank the staff at Autumn Care and Ruth's long-time caregivers/friends, Elizabeth Allen and Mary Ann Boggs, for the compassionate care she was given.
A private graveside service for the family will be held next week. Arrangements are in the care of McEwen Monroe Road Charlotte.
