Mary Ruth Garrett Lynch, 81, of Montgomery went home to be with her Lord on Easter morning, March 23, 2008. After a long illness, Mary Ruth passed away peacefully at CAMC Memorial Hospital, Kanawha City. By her side were her daughter, Cathy Lynch, and dear family friend, Linda Snyder. During the final week of her earthly life, she was surrounded and comforted by the love of dear friends, Nancy Masters Double, Barbara Perkins Fragale, Ann Frantz Griffith, Sandra Spaulding Lockard, Elizabeth Summers Potter and Debbie Wills Robson and niece, Dale Lynch Rothwell.
Mary Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel Luther Garrett and Mary Ellen Hannah Garrett; by her sisters, Katherine Garrett Craig and Virginia Blankenship Williams; and by her nephew, Thomas J. Craig.

She is survived by her daughter, several cousins and numerous loving friends.

Mary Ruth was born on December 29, 1926, and was a member of Montgomery Baptist Church. She graduated from Montgomery High School and attended West Virginia Tech. She was a former employee of C&P Telephone Company and was a talented pianist and artist. She was a devoted and loving mother whose happiest times were spent with her home full of young people for whom she provided a safe and joyous environment and wonderful childhood memories. She was a voracious reader, provided a wonderful home for dozens of beloved pets over the years, was a lover of history and art, and realized a lifelong dream when she and her daughter toured Europe.

Mary Ruth never met a stranger and touched many lives. She will be deeply missed.

Special thanks go to all those who kept Mary Ruth in their prayers.

The service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at O'Dell Funeral Home, Montgomery, with the Rev. Jeff Floyd officiating. Burial will be in Montgomery Memorial Park, London
