Obituary Condolences

Chambliss, Ruth H. Andrews, R.N., went to be with the Lord on Monday morning, August 12, 2013 at the tender age of 86.

Affectionately called "Ms. Ruth" her lifelong passion for Nursing began in 1945 as a member of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corp in WWII, holding the title of Corporal, U.S. Army. She was a graduate of Hackensack School of Nursing, Hackensack, NJ, did post-grad work at Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. and earned her B.S.

Her Montgomery work resume consisted of Baptist Medical Center 1967 -1976, Alabama Medicaid Associate Director Hospital Program 1976-1986 and Wiregrass Hospice 2000-2005.

Ruth is best remembered by her infectious smile, vibrant personality and non work life loves of Mickey Mouse and Disney World, Auburn "War Eagle" football and anything Christmas with "Jingle Bells". Also known as "Memaw" she is survived by her loving family: Daughter and Son-in-Law, Diane Andrews King and Charles M. King of Montgomery, AL; Grandsons and wives, Shawn and Nicole Hartsfield, Jacksonville, FL, Chris and Julie Hartsfield of Valrico, FL, Trent and Amy Hartsfield of Parma, OH; Granddaughter-in-Law, Amanda M. King of Orlando, FL; seven Great-Grandchildren, Sara, Alex, Brodie, Ethan, Blake, Sophia and Maxwell; and two Great-Great-Grandsons, Tommy and Charlie. A Memorial Service will be held at White Chapel Funeral Home with details to be announced at a later date. Presently, well wishes and condolences may be expressed to family via Gentiva Hospice.
