Ruth Fuller Brown was born January 25, 1920 to Ben and Pearl Fuller in New Georgia. In her late teens, Ruth met a young fellow by the name of Henry Grady Brown. Ruth and Grady were married in 1939. Ruth was employed as a foreman at Lockheed. Her division was responsible for examining the hulls of the aircrafts. Ruth was always very proud of her attainment of this job since she was the only woman assigned to manage a group of men, which was unheard of at the time. She attained the position through hard work, determination, and strong work ethics- things that Ruth has held true to all her life. The couple was blessed with two daughters: Barbara Jean Brown and Phyllis Ann Brown Woodall. After leaving Lockheed, Ruth began working for the family hosiery business, Jean's Hosiery Mill.
Ruth was very active at First Baptist Church of Villa Rica. For many years, she served as a Sunday school teacher for the 14-16 year old girls as well as being a long-standing member of the WMU. Later in life, she was a member of the HHH class as well as the JOY class. ends She later opened the Villa Outlet, which sold the family’s hosiery products directly to the public. Ruth worked in and managed this successful business for many years.
In 2005, after 66 happy years of marriage, Grady passed away. She was most recently a Stewart House resident.
In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her husband Henry Grady Brown and brothers, James Fuller, Ray Fuller, Woodrow Fuller, Clifford Fuller and great granddaughter, Hollis Hyneman.
She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Phyllis and Dr. Steve Woodall , Barbara Jean Brownn; brother, Ralph Fuller; 5 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild and several nieces and nephews also survive.
