DRURY, Virginia Ruth Hall "Ginny", age 64, of Prattville, went to be with her Savior Tuesday, January 3, 2011 following nine years of increasing dementia, cared for at home in her last days by her husband and son. A beloved PE teacher, Special Education teacher, Sunday School teacher, AWANA leader, wife and mother, Ginny lived with a pure, contented heart filled with love for God and others, a soul filled with the joy of the Lord, a mind filled with the Word of God, a constant prayer upon her lips, hands that cared for those around her, and a life that exalted Christ. Ginny often would ask people she met, "Do you know God loves you? Do you know He sent his Son Jesus to die for you? And, that if you trust Jesus as your Savior, you'll go to be with Him in Heaven one day?" A native of Maryland, TN, Ginny is survived by LtCol (Ret.
