Ruth Reedy Bell

On Saturday, July 8th, 2017, our most cherished Ruth Marie Reedy Bell passed away peacefully at her residence in Stanaford Acres and went to see her precious daughter, Lovie who she longed to be with once more.   She was in her 88th year.

Born at Slab Fork on January 20, 1929, she was the daughter of WC and Edna Sweeney Reedy.  In addition to her daughter and parents, Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, Earl Lee Bell.

Ruth was a bookkeeper for A& P Tea Company.   She will be long remembered for her great devotion to her special needs child, Merry Lynn “Lovie” Bell.  Great was the love she had for this child.

Left to cherish her memory is her brother, W.E. Reedy and sister, Merry Tilley and her husband, Gary.

On Tuesday, July 11th at 2:00 pm, there will be a “Service of Remembrance” for Ruth at the Melton Mortuary Chapel.  Pastor John Jordan will be officiating.   Ruth will be laid to rest at the Sunset Memorial Park.   The family will be receiving friends at 12 noon.
