My sympathy goes out to all of Ruth Ann's family and friends.  My Dad, Minor Stephens, was a first cousin to Ruth Ann.  Ruth Ann and Mary Lou were special cousins in Dad's memory.  I only visited with Ruth Ann a couple of times in Arizona.  She was very sweet.

Although I don't know the children Ruth Ann was my Mom ( Verda Stephens Hendricks) first cousin. Her dad, Minor was my Grandmother, Melissa Riggins Stephens' brother. I hadn't see Ruth Ann for years but I remember how sweet and well liked she was. My cousin, Don Stephens seen more of her because he is living close in Tempe, AZ. May she RIP and my sincerest sympathy to all the family.  Elsie & Carl Reed
