Ruth Marie (Taylor) Largent was born May 4, 1924 in Madisonville, Texas to parents, Presley & Annie (Swinner) Taylor. She and her husband lived in the Houston area where he worked as a minister. Ruth was a devoted minister’s wife, mother and homemaker. She loved to crochet and was an excellent seamstress, often making items for her own family and others, as well. She also enjoyed the beauty of flowers and gardened a little bit, herself. Reading was also a pastime Ruth enjoyed, and "Gone With The Wind" always remained a favorite. Ruth also had quite the collection of cookie jars comprised of between one and two hundred! She had lived in Centerville since 1983 and was a founding member of Chapel of the Hills Assembly of God Church in Centerville.
