Ruth Ann Haenny, LBI ’51, went to sleep peacefully and left us to be with her Lord on December 31, 2018.
During her lifetime, Ruth Ann was a beloved aunt, teacher, church secretary at Verde Valley Christian Church in Cottonwood, AZ, volunteer at the Cottonwood Library, where she received her 50 year recognition, and a member of Alpha Delta Kappa. She loved people, especially children. She held a Thanksgiving dinner every year for anyone who wished to come. Ruth Ann sang in the choir, served as Sunday School Superintendent, and ran Vacation Bible School. She was famous for being of diminutive stature, baking an amazing Texas sheet cake, and sweet and sticky pull-apart rolls. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by many who were blessed to have her love and support.
