Mary Ruth Ruble Steen peacefully passed away Thursday, October 11, 2018 surrounded by her family and her loving caretakers in Woodstock, Georgia. She was born in Newport, Tennessee in 1931 and attended Saint Mary’s college in Raleigh, North Carolina. There she met her husband John Burton Steen and they were married in 1951. They had 2 children, Marion and John. Her family moved many times up and down the east coast until they settled in Atlanta in 1969. She retired with her husband in Marietta, Georgia. She is survived by her son John and his wife Allyson, their children John and Courtney, and her great-grand-daughter Daphne Reed. She is also survived by son-in-law James Long and his children Charles and Andrew, and her great-granddaughter Hailee Long.  She was preceded in death by her loving husband, John and her daughter, Marion (Mary Jo).  Her bright spirit and humor was enjoyed by everyone she met and indeed, she will be sorely missed.

John, Allyson and family, it has truly been a pleasure spending time with Ms. Mary Ruth. I will miss her singing along with me and her kind and loving spirit. I am truly blessed to have been in her presence and in the presence of such a doting family. She has earned her two wings and I know she is at peace in the arms of the Lord. Continued prayers are with you! Reply to this comment

John & Allyson, As you know, we serve many people in our home. Your Mom, Mary Ruth had that extra special 'somtin, somtin' about her. Her mere presence allowed people to relax, giggle and be themselves. I'm certain that her bright light continues to radiate on! Peace to you & yours. Reply to this comment
