She was born on February 27, 1925 to A.O. “Tug” Stephens and Mattie Salisbury Stephens in the Lone Oak Community southwest of Stephenville. On August 6, 1941, Ruth married Raymond Stephen Carr, a ranch manager. Over the years, the family lived in West Texas, Georgia, the San Antonio area, and DeLeon, before retiring to Stephenville in 1985. Mr. Carr passed away in 2007 after 65 years of marriage. Although she occasionally worked as a clerk and nursing assistant, Ruth was proudest of her role as a homemaker and mother, with her cooking being something which brought enjoyment to herself and others. She was a member of the Valley Grove Baptist Church. Ruth is survived by her daughter, Patricia Sanders of Sylvania, Georgia; son Jerry L. Carr of Kea’au, Hawaii; granddaughters, Angela Bolduc and Julie Snow; great-grandchildren, Keegan and Quinn Hulsey and Alyssa and Greg Romero.
