Ruth King Obituary

On Tuesday, March 12, 2024, Ruth Ella (Neal) King, loving mother and grandmother, passed from this life at the age of 75 at her sister’s home in Coweta with family by her side. 

Ruth was born April 9, 1948 in Claremore, Oklahoma in Rogers County to John Lester and Lula Irene (Isaac) Neal. She graduated from Haskell High School in 1966 and was a homemaker. On December 22, 1966, she married James William King. Together they raised two sons, David and Daniel, and two daughters, Cynthia and Christina.  

Ruth enjoyed spending time with her family outdoors, camping and fishing. They often spent summers at the lake together. She could make any type of food on an open fire that taste amazing.  She enjoyed going to garage sales early in the morning to find the best deals. You could often find her reading a book or doing a crossword puzzle. After her children were older, she would crochet, making blankets, scarves and stocking caps for her family. Ruth enjoyed visiting the casino as often as possible. Ruth was known as “the baseball mom” by most people in her sons’ school. She enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren play or perform in any activity they were involved in.

Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, John and Lula Neal, her husband, James King, daughter Cynthia (Hargrove) King, five brothers, Quinton Neal, Albert Neal, Raymond Neal, John Neal Jr. and Richard Neal.
