Ruth Finch Marshall, 84, wife of Freddie Marshall, passed away Friday, December 27, 2019 at Meadowview Regional Medical Center.

Born September 3, 1935 in Nicholas County to the late Luther "Peck" & Mary Ensor Finch, she attended the Moorefield School. Ruth worked at Bluegrass Industries for a time, then went to work at Crockett & Gaunce Grocery (later Crockett’s Foodtown and Shopwise) and stayed there until her retirement. She liked the many people who came through the store and so many of the young school kids who worked part time. Ruth loved to mow her yard and work in her flower beds. She also enjoyed going to yard sales. She was very outgoing and never met a stranger, but the most important thing is, she was a good mother who loved her kids and will be greatly missed.

Additional survivors are a son, David W. "Pedie" (Brenda) Hardin, II, of Carlisle; a daughter, Letha (Roger) Orme, of Maysville; 3 step-daughters: Shirley (Steve) Knue, of Leitchfield, Sue Carol Marshall, of Lexington, and Mary Beth (Kent) Hopkins, of Carlisle; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and her special 4-legged friend, Rudy.

Also preceding her in death were 2 brothers, Earl & Malcolm Finch.

In accordance with Ruth’s wishes, there will be no services. Following cremation, inurnment will be in the Carlisle Cemetery.
