A 1948 graduate of Raymond High School, Ruth was a loving homemaker and devoted farmer’s wife. She enjoyed tending to her flowers, gardening and baking. Her fresh cookies were always a treat and always ready when family stopped to visit.

On May 11, 1948, she married her husband of over 69 years, Melvin A. “Junior” Douglas and he preceded her in death on August 8, 2017. In addition to her husband and parents, she was also preceded in death by a son, Rex Douglas; grandchildren, Kelly and Greg Douglas; brothers, Howard, John and Pete Eubanks; sisters, Alice Burrus and Betty Miller and a daughter-in-law, Carol.
Surviving are her children, Gary Douglas and Vickie (Roy) Crites of Zanesfield; grandchildren, Cristina (Wayne) Thomas, Chris (Alysia) Crites, Courtney (Guy) Butts, Lynn Douglas, Kerry Douglas, Michelle Barbu and Jamie Douglas; several great grandchildren and a sister, Elizabeth Eubanks of Tampa, FL.
