CLAREMORE — A Memorial Service for Ruth Reasons will be 2 p.m., Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 at her church, Friendly Foyil Baptist.  Ruth passed away Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012 at the age of 76.  

Ruth was born in Bee Ranch, Ark. On Aug. 29, 1936 to Claud and Jessie (Hice) Andrews. She received her education there and then took some clerical courses before beginning her career in accounting.  On March 28, 1955 Ruth and Leonard Reasons married and together raised their son, Don.

A Borden Milk transfer for Leonard brought the family to Tulsa and later to Owasso.  Ruth was employed as a bookkeeper, most recently with Fleming & Associates, work she thoroughly enjoyed, until retirement last year.  Socially active, Ruth was a member of the Elks Lodge and belonged to group of seniors who met several times a month to attend events at the PAC, enjoy each other’s company and plan their numerous trips and cruises.  Her two grandsons, Chad and Dillon, were her pride and joy.  

Ruth is survived by her grandsons, Chad Reasons and wife, Courtney, of Locust Grove and Dillon Reasons of Foyil; and her daughter-in-law, Karen Reasons, also of Foyil.  Ruth was preceded in death by her parents and her son, Don Reasons.
