Ruth Marie McCord Obituary
Just when smiles and laughter are needed most, there's a little less of it in the world today. On January 23, 2018, after 92 years of life, love and shopping trips, Ruth Marie McCord - our beautiful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, friend and lover of puzzles; a person for whom gin & tonics and a game of gin rummy were a daily necessity, a fierce fashionista who got her hair done every Friday and who's outfits matched head to toe, a devoted member of the Assistance League of Riverside and the Victoria Club - finally let go of this world in preparation for the next, slipping away as peacefully and elegantly as one could imagine.
We suspect Mom was met by her folks, Bailey and Ruth, her chatty sisters, Ione and Judy, the love of her life and husband of 56 years, Donald McCord, her close friends who warmed her heart and unless God is looking for trouble, her beloved cats.
Ruth leaves behind an abiding faith in God, a genuine love of laughter and an absolute devotion to her family. Carrying on is her son, Gary (Diane), daughter Karen, 3 grandchildren, Krista (Mike), Matthew (Laura) and Kaycee; plus 6 great-granddaughters; her brother Max (Holly) and many amazing neighbors and friends from everywhere.
Services: Monday, February 12, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Magnolia Church in Riverside. PRESTON AND SIMONS MORTUARY,
