Mary Ruth Alexander, born June 25, 1947 in OKC, passed away March 20, 2006. Her ascension into heaven came after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Mary's strength and determination during this difficult time was fueled by the love that bonded her to those in her life. She enjoyed the simple things in life like going to get a Sonic coke or taking a drive around the lake. We will always love her and keep her in our hearts. Mary graduated from John Marshall High School. She was known as 'Miss Mary' by the children she loved and cared for at Quail Springs Baptist Church. Mary Ruth had a kind and gentle heart that endeared her to everyone she met. Mary spent the last seven years of her life in a loving relationship with Kenneth Martin. She is survived by her 3 grown children; Lisa Hawkins, Gina Fergeson and Jon Alexander which she raised with her first husband of 33 years, Robert Alexander IV. She is also survived by her sister and devoted caregiver Joan Pittman, her brother Eddie Wheatley, seven grandchildren and many other family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Ralph and Marvelle Wheatley, a brother Carl Roy Wheatley and a Nephew Randy Pittman. Services will be 10:00 AM Friday at the Bill Merritt Memorial Chapel with interment following at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
