Ashro Woman: Ruth H.
Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Ruth H.. from Louisville, GA
“DOING YOUR BEST is ALWAYS required!!”
It’s easy to see that Ruth lives life with gusto: from her bright smile…to her deep faith…to the way she ALL CAPS many of her words. Now retired, Ruth loves “the TIME that is ALL MINE!!!” She spends that time reading, sewing (sometimes changing up Ashro clothes), “revamping” recipes, and watching Steve Harvey on Family Feud. Kids also bring her joy.
Ruth’s positive attitude is a beautiful choice. She has overcome her share of trouble, struggling with broken bones since 1967. Thankfully, once she was able to get a hip replacement, “life got so much BETTER!!!” If you ask Ruth what gets her up every morning, she will say it’s her faith. “Without GOD–my LIFE would be like a ship without a SAIL!!!”
