Ruth Edington, of Midway, went to be with her Lord and Savior at the age of 93 on Wednesday, February 3, 2021. Born third in a family of ten children, she was raised on a Greene County farm and became a farm wife following her marriage. She milked cows for years and helped with tobacco and was noted for being an extremely fast spudder when helping to cut tobacco. She also loved to cook and enjoyed feeding family and friends. She loved flowers from childhood through old age and often told family and friends about her mother growing long rows of bright flowers during her youth. She attended church as long as she was able and always enjoyed gospel music, often singing along when watching gospel music videos. Ruth enjoyed visits from family and other special friends, including Brenda and Richard Dobbelaere, Vicky, Jack and Hazel Robinson, and nephew-in-law, Sonny Ramsey. Mrs. Edington is survived by a daughter, Loretta Edington Gaylor; her son, William Edington; grandsons Lynn (Hope) and Mike (Lisa), and granddaughters, Leah (Eric) and Andrea, daughter-in-law, Ann; five great grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren; three brothers, Andy (Anna Mae), Edward, and Charlie; one brother-in-law, Fred Rader, and two sisters-in-law, Novella and JoAnne McCamey.
