SPRINGFIELD, IL - Ruth Mann, 94, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Monday, March 17, 2014. She was born on May 1, 1919. Ruth was a strong woman of faith and a mighty prayer warrior, and her extraordinary prayer life will be sorely missed. She had a great compassion for others. Never did she meet a stranger without asking them the question, "Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior?" Ruth would always let them know she would pray for them…and she did.
Ruth is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Jim; two daughters, Priscilla Evans of Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Jann Braun (husband, Rick) of Chatham, Ill.; two grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, and a number of nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, G.W. and Fanny Bridges; two brothers and three sisters, including her precious twin sister, Ruby; and her great-grandson, Jeremy Evans.
Visitation: 11 a.m.-12 p.m., Saturday, March 22, 2014, at Staab Funeral Home.
Funeral Service: 12 p.m., Saturday, March 22, 2014, at Staab Funeral Home with Reverend Rick Braun officiating. Burial will follow at Chatham Cemetery.
