Jessie Ruth Wilson of Spartanburg, SC went home to be with family and many friends in her Lord's House on March 27, 2017. Born in Inman on December 26, 1930, she was the 3rd daughter of the late Roxie (Pruitt) and William A. Wilson. Ruth was a member of Beaumont Baptist Church and a proud member of the Dorcas Sunday School Class. Ruth retired from Raycord Shirt Factory as a supervisor after 45 plus years of employment after the plant closed.

She is survived by two brothers, James "Buddy" Wilson and his wife Bertha of Spartanburg, SC and Michael Wilson and his wife Beki of Spartanburg, SC and one sister, Betty Smith of Inman, SC and one sister-in-law, Lois Wilson of Inman, SC. Ruth was the proud aunt of 20 nieces and nephews and even more great nieces and nephews as well as a godmother.

In addition to her parents, she was also predeceased by one brother, Alton Wilson and two sisters, Evelyn Ridings and Hazel Strickland.

Ruth's family and friends believe if you were fortunate enough to know her, you were blessed by the experience. Ruth like her mother, was always more interested in helping and giving that being helped or receiving. She gave freely of her time and resources to her loved ones and people and animals in need.
