Ruth Hill, age 88, of Monticello, Ky. departed this life May 15, 2017 at her home.
She was born April 23, 1929 in Cincinnati, Ohio to parents, Mary and Happy, who preceded her in death.
She was the baby of nine children. Her siblings also preceded her in deathAnnabell, Edna, Helen, Mary Louise, Bill, Clossem, Eddie and George.
She began her career at Cincinnati Bell at age 18. Working for 35 years starting as an operator and climbing to Blueprints. She was loyal to her job.
If you knew Ruth, you knew she did not like laziness or dishonesty, and you better not mistreat an animal.
She loved many things.
In her younger years she played softball and was on a bowling team.
If she wasn't working she might be fishing, boating, or traveling.
She was proud to be a member of the First Christian Church and
thankful for the good fellowship.
Current events was another priority. Just ask Ruth and she could tell you the latest news.
She was a member of the Wayne Women's Republican Club and loved it.
She loved nature. She and Carol also loved to help people in need.
We often teased her because while she was a generous person there were a few things she just didn't like to share with anyone: her pickles and her Bobby Upchurch pen.
She leaves behind her best friend and cousinCarol Kennedy. They have shared a home since 1969. This happened because Ruth's mother wanted Carol to teach Ruth how to cook and clean. Carol did not succeed!
Business lady she was, domestic she was not!
She also leaves behind three beautiful dogsCassie, Patches and Maggie.
She never wanted a cat until a stray kitty appeared and stole her heart.
She is survived by a niecePam; and nephewsJohn, Adam, Bill and families.
She has many friends. All of you are special and you know who you are. Old, middle aged, and young.
