Ruth Hathaway, 92, beloved Mother, Wife, Daughter, and Grandmother, was called to Heaven on April 14, 2024. Ruth was born on April 19, 1931 in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Hiram and Opal Stevens. She married Frank Hathaway and moved with their two small boys to run a farm in Sanford, FL.

She is survived by her daughter-in-law Elizabeth Hathaway, her grandchildren Rachelle Hathaway, Jessica (and Jerry Willis) and her great grandchildren Joshua, Jack, Zac, Mia and Jeremiah. She is preceded in death by her husband Frank Hathaway and by her sons Steve and Bert Hathaway. 2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
