LAFAYETTE - A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 10:00 am at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette for Ruth B. Deville, 80, who died Monday, August 27, 2012 at Lafayette General Medical Center in Lafayette.

Ruth was born Saturday, May 7, 1932 in Opelousas and was a lifetime resident of Acadiana. She was the former owner of Flowerland along with her husband until their retirement in 1994.

Ruth was an amazing woman; her passions included her husband, family and friends. She died the way she lived; with courage, grace and style.

Deville, Jr. and his wife, Karen of Bothell, WA; one sister, Juanita Cain and her husband, James of Opelousas; fourteen grandchildren, twenty-seven great grands and many dear nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank Briley and the former Mary Olive Durio; one brother, Vernon Briley and one great-grandchild, Rebecca Kate Faul.
