Cancer took our dear Ruth Marsh away Jan. 27 in Dublin, Texas. She was surrounded by her daughters Helen and Frances Marsh and Terah Lewis in her final hours in her home. She was preceded in death by her husband Frank Marsh.
Deep thank you to the many, many friends that came and brought food, love and support during Ruth’s very quick ascent. Just like her life, she was strong and caring through the end. Ruth Marsh was born Feb. 15, 1946, in Orange County.
If you knew Ruth, she was an amazing multifaceted, wise and compassionate woman. She lived life with few regrets, from “running away and joining the circus” as a traipse artist to flying airplanes, to ham radio, as well as an artist of many mediums. She was queen of the local Red Hat’s as well as a personality at the Chicken House Flea market. Ruth was a dynamic individual with a breadth of acceptance from gay rights activism in South Texas in the early ’90s to her commitment to the Greek Orthodox Church.
There will be a celebration of life Friday, Feb. 1 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Dublin Senior Center. Her final resting place will be at the Holy Archangels Greek Orthodox Monastery in Kendalia, Texas.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a memorial fund for final expenses due to the long battle with this horrendous disease at First Financial Bank in Stephenville, www.ffin.com.
