Ruth Adams Roark Hollis
Birth: Sep. 13, 1894
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Feb. 7, 1973
Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz County
California, USA

Grandma Hollis was a very "lady" in every way,she was regal and very sweet. She was my stepdads mother,but I felt as if she was my grandmother-I used to love our visits to Santa Cruz even though the house was so warm because of her arthritis. She suffered terribly with her arthritis and finally passed away from complications of a surgery on her leg. What was so sad is that my stepdad"Goober" was also suffering from reumatoid arthritis and was in the hospital revovering from surgery on his wrists when his Mom passed on and he could not even go to her services. Besides Omar Guy she also was survived by her second husband Elbert and a daughter Mattie Faye -that I knew as Mel. Her first husband and the childrens father was William Edgar Roark. I was told by my dad that he was killed in a gun fight in Texas-in the wild wild west about 1916.
