Ruth Naomi Moulton, 87, died Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, at her home in Wake Forest, North Carolina. She was born July 17, 1930, in Dallas, Texas.

Ruth was preceded in death by her loving husband, Francis E. Moulton (Aug. 4, 2017) and her oldest daughter. She is survived by her three children, two stepchildren, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as several sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews.

Ruth often attended St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Jacksonville Beach when she wasn’t traveling. In 2017, Ruth and Frank moved to Wake Forest, where Ruth enjoyed spending time with her grandkids.
