Ruth Ellen Stanley

August 6, 1931 — October 18, 2023

It is with a hopeful heart and an uplifted spirit that we celebrate the extraordinary life of Ruth Ellen Stanley, who lived a fulfilling 92 years from August 6th, 1931 to October 18th, 2023. Born in the quaint town of Salem, Ohio, Ruth later found her forever home in Easley, South Carolina, where she passed into eternal rest.
Ruth was a beacon of light, illuminating the lives of her beloved husband, Dwaine Stanley, with whom she shared an enduring love story of 72 years. He even sold his pig in order to buy her engagement ring. She is also survived by her cherished children - Karen Upson (Don), Joyce Kiepura (Bob), the late Rick Stanley (Robin), Randy Stanley (Denise), and Barb Nichols. She was predeceased by her son-in-law, Dan Nichols. Ruth's legacy continued to thrive through her 15 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson, each of whom she loved deeply and prayed for daily.
Ruth was a high school graduate and a dedicated homemaker, creating an environment of love, care, and warmth for her family. Her home was not just a dwelling place but a sanctuary filled with faith, joy, and the aroma of her love. Ruth’s contributions to her family and community were immeasurable, as she devoted her life to nurturing those around her, a testament to her unwavering dedication and love for her family.
Ruth's faith was the cornerstone of her life. She was an active member of her church, where she found great solace and purpose. Her love for hymnals was not just confined to Sunday worship; she dedicated time to researching them, finding comfort and wisdom in their sacred verses. Ruth's faith was not a passive observance but a living, breathing testament to her devotion to God and her fellow man. She was a prayer warrior, fervently interceding for her loved ones and even those she did not know personally. Ruth prayed everyday for each one of her family members by name
Ruth was more than just friendly; she was a friend to all. She was a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength who always had a kind word or a prayer to share. Her faith-filled life was an inspiration to all who knew her. She lived the scriptures she held dear, embodying love, kindness, and forgiveness in her everyday interactions.
Ruth's life was not just about the years she lived but about the lives she touched. She was a testament to the power of faith, the strength of family, and the beauty of a life well-lived. Her legacy is not just in the family she leaves behind but in the hearts she touched, the prayers she offered, and the love she gave unconditionally.
In every sunrise, let us remember Ruth's warmth, in every hymn, let us remember her faith, and in every act of kindness, let us remember her love. Ruth Ellen Stanley may have left this earthly realm, but her spirit lives on in the lives she touched and the faith she instilled in us all.
Even as we mourn the loss of Ruth Ellen Stanley, let us find comfort in the knowledge that her life was a testament to the power of love, faith, and family. Her legacy will continue to inspire and motivate us to live our lives with purpose, kindness, and unwavering faith. Thank you, Ruth, for showing us the power of a life lived in faith. You will be dearly missed, but your spirit will live on in our hearts forever.
