OBITUARY - JESSIE RUTH (WOOLLUMS) CARLTON

Jessie Ruth CARLTON, youngest child of William Perry and Eva Josephine (AMBROSIER) WOOLLUMS, was born February 11, 1915, near Ellston, Iowa, and after a lengthy illness departed this life at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 9, 2000, at the age of 85 years, four months and 28 days.

Ruth graduated from Ellston High School in 1932. She completed a year of secretarial school and worked in Mount Ayr, Iowa, before moving to Des Moines where she became a legal secretary.

Ruth was united in marriage to Leo Max CARLTON October 2, 1965. They resided in Des Moines until moving to the family farm near Ellston in 1977. In 1979, they built and moved into a new home in Mount Ayr. Ruth was so happy to move back to her home "area" and Max loved living in Mount Ayr. Ruth enjoyed playing bridge and was active in three local clubs. Max looked forward to the twice-a-day coffee meetings at Mitchell's.

Left to cherish her memories are five children: Jack CARLTON, wife Mary Lou, San Gabriel, California; Max Jr. CARLTON, wife Jackie, Pomona, California; Connie STEVENS, husband Jim, Des Moines, Iowa; Cathy DePHILLIPS, husband Milo, Panora, Iowa; and Michael CARLTON, wife Betty, Milford, Iowa; 23 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; one brother, Robert WOOLLUMS, wife Hazel, of El Cajon, California; and a host of relatives and friends.

Ruth was preceded in death by her mother, father, husband, two grandchildren, five sisters - Mary GRAY, Jennie WALTERS, Rena JACKSON, Louise WALTERS and Evelyn McCONNELL, and one brother - John WOOLLUMS.

Reverend Mike DRUHL conducted memorial services July 12, 2000, at the Wilson, Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa. Music was provided by John ALLEN and pianist Ginny EIGHMY.
