Bentley Funeral Homes

Note: Original obituary stated Ruth would be buried in the Durant Cemetery, Durant, Iowa, at a later date. No record of her burial in that cemetery has been received/recorded to date (Jan 13, 2015). Her infant daughter, Melody Ann Goodrich is buried in the Durant Cemetery. It's assumed both Ruth and her son Everett were cremated and their memorials reflect this status.
