Ruth Lorraine Comfort Dodson, 85, went home to be with her Lord on Sunday evening Jan 19th. Ruth was a loving, kind and generous person. To know Ruth was to love her. She retired from Dallas Teachers Credit Union in 1979, where she served as a Senior Loan Officer. In retirement, Ruth was a devoted wife. She and Thomas had a lot of fun doing just what they enjoyed - always together. After Thomas died, Ruth became active in so many local charities. She was a generous person always wanting to help and do for others. She especially loved crocheting blankets for The Wood County Child Advocacy Center, so that each child left with one. Ruth especially enjoyed garage sales, trivia, bible study, old TV shows, music by Sonny James and the Winnsboro Dairy Queen (not in that order). Ruth always greeted people by her signature “Hi Darling”.
