Ruth Hewitt

Monday, July 11, 2016

Roy moved on to a job with the Honeywell corporation, which later transferred him to Richmond, Virginia and subsequently to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.Then after he retired, the couple initially moved to Texarkana, Texas and finally settled in the northwest corner of Alabama, near Florence. And in all of these places, Ruth knew well how to turn a rectangular patch of dirt into a fresh market, and a yard into a veritable Bellingrath Gardens. More than once, a garden club of which she was a member awarded her for the colorful irises she had coaxed from the earth. And even though it became tougher as she aged for her to tend to things green, there are, as this obituary is being written, about twenty blueberry bushes growing in one corner of Ruth’s yard, all weighed down with limb-snapping quantities of berries that the people from Smucker’s would love to get their hands on. On the other hand, she never really stopped reading, non-fiction and fiction, good fiction too. Plus, Ruth enjoyed solving crossword puzzles. In fact, the Sunday New York Times puzzle spent many years trying to get the best of her, and only recently encountered any success. And Ruth enjoyed watching a good movie as well. However, she’d not wax nostalgically or sentimentally when critiquing an old movie just because it was, well, an old movie. In such cases, if the acting and/or the plot were bad, her reviews would tend to include the word crap or stupid or both.Yet, doing crosswords and reviewing movies were mere hobbies here. The thing Ruthexcelled at was telling stories, and not ala Aesop either. No morals, or words to live by, they were just funny. For instance, she could return from the grocery store with a tale that featured plot elements as basic as, maybe, a shopping cart with a bum wheel and a hard-to- find food item and a just-hired store clerk, and via her unique way of recalling the particular events, craft it all into a comedic work of art, made much more hilarious when Ruth inevitably became tickled herself during the retelling. Good storytellers notice details, but also appreciate the magic in the seemingly mundane and minor. Ruth understood this, and her ability to turn a tale was further proof that, to her, the essence of life was appreciating things small and simple.And last but not least, it should be noted that Ruth was a very open-minded individualwhen it came to religion, her three favorites being Catholicism, Frank Sinatra, and Alabama football. Hence, if she were ever asked a question the answer to which was obviously yes, she could have utilized three snappy comebacks. One, does the Pope wear a funny hat? Two, could Sinatra croon? And three, does the University of Alabama usually have the best college football team in America each fall?No Pulitzers or medals won in war or cures for cancer, Ruth was simply a good woman,intelligent and talented too, whose presence made her small corner of the world, wherever it happened to be, a much better place. See, Ruth, as explained, you were never a burden, and never would have been…Additional survivors include a great grandchild, Kaelan Wilson, and two grandchildren,Jennifer Wilson and Dana Warren, plus her daughters’ significant others: Allan Block (Janice), Jerry Baker (Kathleen), and Steve Warren (Diane). Ruth is survived as well by several nieces and nephews. Also, the family wishes to thank the staff at Cypre
