Ruth went home to be with her beloved husband and son on November 3, 2017 after a short illness. Fly high oh loved one, we will miss you so much, but we know your work on earth is done. Ruth was the fourth child of eight born to Hubert Allen Mize Sr. and Annis Clorene Shinault. Ruth was born in Mesa, Arizona and moved with her family to Texas when she was eleven. In 1967, she married the love of her life and soulmate, Leonard Donald Snider.

Ruth and L.D. were married 49 years and had 2 children, Tammy Kathleen Snider Cofield and Donald Allen Novel Snider. She had 4 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. She was very proud of all of them and loved them to the moon and back. They were very special to her and "Granny" was very special to all of them.

Ruth loved to spend time with her great grandchildren. She loved going to garage sales. She and L.D. enjoyed having their annual 4 th of July picnics with family and friends. She enjoyed watching her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren participate in sports and school events. She loved watching westerns, especially John Wayne, a love she shared with her son, Donald and granddaughter, Brooke. She loved being outside and swimming in her pool. She loved teaching her grandchildren and great grandchildren how to swim. She was especially close to her great granddaughter, Emi, and loved helping her with her homework and learning to read. They would invent stories together and loved spending time together.
