Ruth was born Sept. 25, 1936, the daughter of Raymond and Myrla (Deal) Edaburn. She grew up in rural Center Point and graduated in 1954. Ruth was united in marriage to Raymond Attwood on Sept. 4, 1954, at Center Point United Methodist Church. She was a loving wife and mother, always taking care of everyone’s needs from hauling in the corn during harvest to baking the best birthday cakes and pies. She worked a short while as a bus driver for Center Point schools. In retirement she and Ray liked living in warm places in the wintertime, playing cards and taking trips. She had a passion for the Cubs and Hawkeyes. Ruth was a member of Anchor Bible Church and Federated Garden Club. Most importantly, Ruth’s kind generous spirit and love for Jesus will long be remembered. She will be missed.
