Our mother, Ruth Zinn passed into the loving presence of the Lord on November 22, 2018 at 5:45AM.  She went peacefully in her sleep, full of years and life at the age of 93.  She was born on May 29, 1925 in Lake Village, Arkansas, the last child of William Henry Case and Annie (Brown) Case, and was raised on her parent’s farm near the village of Arkansas City, Arkansas.  She is survived by her two sons, Bill and Don Zinn, her grandchildren, Kristina Stuckey and Sarah Zinn, and her two great granddaughters, Ashley Thorpe and Savanna Stuckey.  She was married to Boris G. Zinn in Memphis, Tennessee in January 1947, Dad preceded her in death in May, 2002.

Her and Dad moved to the family farm house outside of Myrtle Point, Oregon in 1973, after living in Myrtle Point since 1960.  They spent their retirement years restoring the old house, raising chickens, a garden chasing off the occasional invasion of Racoons, Skunks, Bears and other wildlife that thought the chickens and garden were a welcoming buffet.

She was a member of Emmanuel Baptist Church, in Coquille, Oregon, and was always busy raising flowers, which she faithfully supplied to her church for Sundays.  She was always faithful to that congregation, helping with Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and many other fellowship functions.  Shew will be sorely missed by a congregation that loved her dearly.  She cultivated many friends in her time on earth, all of whom will miss her.  She will be missed by all of us who loved her and know that she is now eternally at peace in the presence of her Lord, Jesus Christ.

Don - so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I loved the start of each new school year in high school when she would tailor make my school clothes. A very nice lady indeed.

Dearest cousins Bill and Don and all, I have updated Ruth's page on my familysearch.org page to reflect her stepping back into the arms of Her husband. You can see the page by following this link to familysearch.org. Living peoples information is managed in a different space so until now her information was invisible. May your family be blessed. Your cuz Melissa
