Ruth Ann Ford Hymas passed unexpectedly from this life on September 22, 2022. She is now free of pain and happily reunited with her loved ones that preceded her in death.
Ruth was and is dearly loved by many people in the community. She was a manager at Lee's Market Place in Smithfield. She loved her job and didn’t want to quit even even with declining health because it gave her the opportunity to meet and talk to so many interesting people, which brought her a tremendous amount of joy. Ruth was kind, caring, and loving. She made friends everywhere she went and made sure everyone that came in contact with her felt loved and important to her.
Nothing was more important to Ruth than her family. Her family was her pride and joy.

She was predeceased by her parents Richard Ford and Buena Porter and by her son Jonathon (Jonny) Hymas.

Her children and their spouses are (or were) as follows: Nathan Hymas (Ronette), Athena Stovall (Davis), Jonny Hymas (Jenn), Anna Merrill (Naitt), Sarah Pett (John), Laura Holste (Andy), Buffy Rose (Gerad), and Jennie Hymas.
Nothing made Ruth happier than her grandchildren and great grandchildren. If asked, many of them would still say “their favorite childhood memories were spent at Grandma Ruth’s house… because she made everything seem magical”.
