Ruth E. Wilson, age 88 of Marion, passed away on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at Kingston Residence of Marion after dealing with Alzheimer’s for many years. On November 12, 1931, she was born to the late Vernon and Marie (Lust) Denman, and on August 15, 1954, she married the love of her life, George M. Wilson, who preceded her in death in 2013.
Ruth graduated from Waldo School, and then she worked for over 20 years as a bus driver for Ridgedale Local Schools, but her heart was always farming. She enjoyed yardwork and caring for her garden.
