Ruth Ann Dickens of Cuba, Missouri was born Sunday, October 26, 1947 at Owensville, Missouri to the union of Garrett and Edna E. (Ragan) Dickens and went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at Cuba Manor at the age of 70 years.
Ruth Ann loved talking on the phone, putting together puzzles, playing Old Maid and Bingo. She spent many hours watching TV, especially “The Price is Right”, “Wheel of Fortune” and wrestling. When her favorite shows were on, she didn’t want you to talk to her.
Her favorite places to go out to eat at were Long John Silvers and the “Big Bull”. She enjoyed coloring with her nieces, reading Dick and Jane books, making pot holders on her little loom and taking naps.
Ruth was a member of the Cuba Free Will Baptist Church and always treasured the time she spent there. As everyone know knew, she never went anywhere without her purse.
What she truly loved most was being spoiled by her family and spending time with them.
Ruth Ann was a loving daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great aunt, great-great aunt and friend of everyone she ever met.
