    Ruth Ann was such a sweet generous lady with a heart to serve. She was a devoted volunteer at the schools in Friendswood. Friendswood youth baseball programs also had the “Baughman” team; Steve as Coach and RuthAnn, the dedicated team mom. Ruth Ann was humble strong Christian lady that handled everything with grace. Her home was a beautiful showcase with her table set for the next meal to host. I would see her in her later years at Friendswood library story time with her grandchildren. She loved having an opportunity to spend time with them! They gave her such joy!
    Our Prayers are sent to both J and Hunter for the loss of their loving , devoted mom.
    May she Rest In Peace.

    I grew up next door to Ruth Ann on Heisse St. and she and her family were very important to me. I am sorry that we were unable to keep in touch through the years. My sincere condolences for your loss and I will remember her and the family with prayers.
