Weiner and husband, Keith, Doris McKinney; great-nephew, Harry McKinney III and wife, Candice; and her great-greatnephews, Harry and Christopher McKinney. She is also survived by two long time friends, Iris Lloyd and Lucille Slayton. Special thanks to the folks at Magnolia Ridge Assisted Living for their loving care of Aunt Ruth during these last few years, and Dr. Steven Collins. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, October 3, 2008, in Sherwood Memorial Park. The Rev. Walter Wood will officiate.
