Obituary for Willie Ruth Bruce

Willie Ruth Bruce, age 86, born February 9, 1931 of LaFollette, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, November 16, 2017. She was a member of Alder Springs Baptist Church and loved her family as they were the joy of her life. She enjoyed Church, cooking, sewing, and canning.
Standing to meet her in Heaven was her Lord Jesus Christ and her beloved husband of 65 years, Ebert Harley Bruce; her heart went with him on January 27, 2014. Preceded in death by parents, James Henry & Surelda Mynatt; brothers, Tommy Mynatt, Paris Mynatt; sisters, Sallie Wilhoit, Dora Maire Hill, Harriet Mynatt, and Leona Hatmaker; sister-in-laws, Francis Mynatt, Jolene Mynatt.

Those of us longing to be with her one day,

Brother: Verlin Mynatt

Too many nieces and nephews to count, but she loved them all
