Pensacola - Ruth E. Kingry, age 96, of Pensacola, FL, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 21, 2020, from Pensacola. Ruth was born in Englewood, NJ, to the late Roger and Ruth Perrenoud Cretaux. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 46 years, Joe Earl Kingry.

Ruth was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved to travel, read, go camping and do crossword puzzles.

She was a teacher in Escambia County Florida Public Schools for 31 years, having taught first and third grades at Agnes McReynold and third grade at Scenic Heights Elementary. She was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma for over 60 years. She loved teaching and she loved children. She above all loved the Lord and spending time with her family and friends. She will be dearly missed by many.
