Ruth Cornelia Bond Barbush our sweet Mother and Grandmother has gone “home” to be with the Lord.
Her 96 years were filled with hard work, deeply devoted love and always an open door.
Born at home, married at home, and died at home; faith, family, friends, and home were her priorities.
Ruth Cornelia married a pilot in the service, raised two girls of her own, and treasured having three granddaughters.
Late in life she still took pride in a well pruned yard; raking, trimming, and burning. Mother always wanted to observe the fruits of her labors from the top of her roof.
During her last days she shared that she had lived a long, happy, and successful life. She expressed she had no regrets, nothing left undone; that she loved her family unconditionally but she was ready to go “home” and walk with the Lord.
Ruth Cornelia did not live life with “finer things” but did live a finer life.
We will miss her greatly but are comfortable knowing she is at peace.
