    Ruth Ann Prentice was born September 23, 1947 in Flint, MI to George and Pauline MacKellar. Ruth went to be with her Savior on June 7, 2008. Her fight, determination, and courage will be remembered by the many who knew and loved her. Ruth was born into a loving Christian home and accepted the Lord as her Savior as a child. The Maranatha graduate, moved to Albuquerque where she and her family lived for over 23 years. Ruth was a valued employee of Intel. Although her health problems often threatened to slow her down, her dedication and determination to do her job well and up to her expectations always over-ruled whatever pain she was experiencing. She successfully excelled in her career at Intel. Ruth was active in many ministries at the church and she was not happy if she wasn't serving in some capacity in her church. Her music was her love and she played piano for countless services, accompanied choirs, and specials, but especially enjoyed playing for her husband as he sang. Many people have been blessed by the music Ruth and Don presented. Services were held on Friday, June 13, 2008. Ruth will be greatly missed by all who were honored to know her.

    Ruth is survived by her husband, Don Prentice; daughter, Melissa Austin and her husband, Shelby; mother, Pauline; sister, Barb; and two brothers, George and Ed. She is also survived by her grandson, James; and granddaughter, Andrea.

Daughter of Donald and Ruth:

  1. Melissa Prentice. She m. Shelby Austin. Children:

    2. Andrea Austin.

Cecil;s obituary identifies his parents as Allie Ray and Charlie Prentice. Unfortunately, neither Cecil nor his parents appear in the 1930 census, nor do they appear in the SSDI, so we are unable to glean additional information about the parents.
