An Amazing Woman

Azariah and Grammy

On January 7th our Grandmother passed away. Her name was Ruth Alice Green Frye or Ruthie, although she was always called "Grammy" by us and loved by all. Born on July 3rd, 1926 she was 83 years old.
She was an amazing woman, always there to serve, welcome and love you. When our family last went to Colorado and visited her at the Rocky Ford nursing home, she had had Parkinson for almost 18 years, but when the kids started to look tired she offered her bed and said "you can take a nap with me on my bed, or I can stay here on this chair and you can take a nap on my bed".

It was a sweet thing, for she had been up for a while and was really tired and needed a nap at the time but instead of taking her bed she offered it to the kids. Another time Jos and I (Hosanna) were staying in Colorado a couple years back, at the cabin in Beulah up in the mountains. It was 8 O'clock and Jos suggested watching a movie, so she got out the popcorn and made a batch, then sat there with us and watched the movie, even though it was past the time when she usually went to bed. There were many things both big and small that she did that showed her love to serve others and God, she was a huge blessing. When you came she always welcomed you and talked to you, and she would always perk up whenever someone was around. Always ready to get up and help she truly had a servants heart. Now she is with out Lord in heaven, with her son our uncle Jerry and his wife Aunt Daryln along with her parents and some of her siblings. No Parkinson but freely and easily walking around probably serving and loving all the people up there and worshiping our Lord. While keeping an eye on her 28 grandchildren and 36 great grandchildren along with her 5 remaining children here on earth and her 8th grade childhood sweetheart whom she later married (Grandad Bill Frye).

  1. Oh, I'm so sorry Hosanna. But I'm so glad she's gone home to be with the Lord. You're posts are always an encouragement. However, I know your grandma will be greatly missed.

    I'll be praying for your whole family.
