Alma Ruth was one of a kind! We always looked forward to the nights she was on duty to sign off on warrants for us here at the Sheriff's Office. Her and Evert would come up to the jail and usually wound up staying with most of the night visiting with us! I'm saddened to hear she has passed, but have peace in knowing she was ready to go home! My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and loved ones left here to mourn her passing.

My aunt Alma Ruth was one hard fighter! She was a great lady. She and her sister, married my Dad’s brothers so it was one big, happy family! Alma Ruth worked hard all her life. She farmed, raised six beautiful children, took care of many of her grandchildren, helped her husband in sales, and held a job. She could keep her whole Jarrett family in line and found time to enjoy things like going to the beach or a few races! As her memory started to decline, her loving family stood by her and took care of her, especially when her husband passed away. Alma Ruth loved people and always made you feel welcome in her home. I remember some good meals at her house which was always bustling with family and friends. Once in a while, she would find a quiet place to settle her nerves from all the activity. She was a dear, kind soul. RIP Alma Ruth.
