Mrs. McCartney retired from Anchor Hocking in 1980. She enjoyed attending social events with her friends at the Fairmont Arbors. Her family and friends will remember her most for her fondness of the color purple.

Also surviving are a brother, Kenneth Bond of Clarksburg; a sister, Margaret Dean of Lyman, S.C.; as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Herbert McCartney; a sister, Oleta Haynes and her husband Bob; a brother, Glenn Bond; a brother-in-law, Jack Dean; and a sister-in-law, Shirley Bond.

In keeping with Ruth’s wishes, there will be no funeral home visitation. Family and friends are welcome to graveside services at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens in Quiet Dell, Mount Clare, at 1 p.m. Wednesday with the Rev. Bert Coffman officiating.

Carpenter and Ford Funeral Home, 209 Merchant St., Fairmont, has been entrusted with all arrangements.
