Our sweet mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Ruth Ivy Oliver Mayne, slipped gracefully and peacefully away on May 19, 2020, surrounded with love by her daughters, Connie and Shauna. It was a time of peace and even joy as we reflected on her life well lived and the example, influence and impact she had on not only us, but so many others. She will be remembered for her genuine warmth and love for family, friends, community, country, and church.
A part of her will live eternally in the hearts of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We are most grateful for her kind and encouraging words, her unfailing devotion and love, and her everlasting legacy of commitment and sacrifice towards those we hold most dear. We are grateful for the many years we got to spend with her beautiful and loving influence in our lives and will honor her by the way she lived by accepting and loving everyone. We will forever love our sweet mom, grandma and great-grandma.
