Annie Ruth Binford passed away February 11, 2023 at Park Place Nursing Home.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Claude C. Binford and Sallie R. Binford; her sister, Margaret Binford Hunter and her brother-in-law, Herman “Tweet” Hunter.
She is survived by Donna Roberts Williams, David H. Williams, Sr., David H. Williams, Jr., Heath Binford Williams, Devon Williams, Canaan Binford Williams and Carina Blayne Williams and long-time friend, Frances Brantley.
She was born in Selma, Alabama on October 30, 1925, was a graduate of A.G. Parish High School Class of 1943 and lifetime member of the Highland Church of Christ. Ruth was a quiet, unassuming person and led a quiet life. She didn’t talk much, but when she spoke, her words spoke profoundly.
Her favorite scripture was always Philippians 4:11, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. ESV.” She truly lived that statement. She was always content, no matter what the situation.
She loved her family and spent a lot of time with all of them in San Antonio, Texas and Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
She worked for Ames Bag & Packaging Corp. in Selma and Marion, Alabama as Office Manager and Bookkeeper for over 40 years. She retired in 1988. After retirement, she worked for First Presbyterian Church as Financial Secretary for 17 years. She retired from there in 2005. She was also the bookkeeper for the Emerald Mountain Christian School in Wetumpka, Alabama for over 20 years, from her home.
A private memorial service will be held with minister, Dennis Turner officiating and Lawrence Brown-Service Funeral Home directing. She will be laid to rest at New Live Oak Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to The Highland Church of Christ; 1106 Highland Avenue, Selma, Alabama 36701 or a charity of your choice.
