Ruth was a light in my life, she taught me in Sunday School and through that she spoke into my life. As a teen I was always awkward and felt a little out of place at Church. She was always so kind to me and my family. She was genuine and as a teen one notices things like that. I know that I will see her again one day in heaven. May your hearts be comforted in knowing that she was a blessing to others.
We have given a donation to the Salesian Missions which serves poor children and their families worldwide. They have enrolled Mrs. Ruth Carpenter Childress in the Sacred Heart Assiciation. There she will share remembrance in perpetuity in daily mass at the Sacred Heart Basilica in Rome. As well, she will be remembered in Rosary and the prayers and good works of the Salesian Fathers as well as the children of the missions each day. May God rest her sweet kind soul. We love you.
Sorry to learn of Mrs. Childress's death.She was a sweet, loving person and a very caring neighbor and fellow First Baptist Church member of Mother's for many, many years. She will be greatly missed by all of the First Baptist Church members past and present and citizens of Roanoke who knew her. My prayers are with her family.
