Ruth's obituary was published as follows:11
Ruth Sabina Russell was born in Randolph county, Ind., on June 7, 1845 and died May 9, 1914, lacking only a few days of being 69 years old.
She was married to Wm. Russell on August 13, 1868. Three children were born to them but died in infancy. Mrs. Russell is survived by her husband and one brother, Rev. Wm. Hinshaw of Burton, Kansas, who spent about a week visiting his only suster. He returned to his home only two days before she passed away. Mrs. Russell was a Christian lady and was strictly faithful in what she conceived to be right, no matter whether the thing was popular or unpopular. Mrs. Russell was a natural born teacher and leader, teaching her first school when but sixteen years old.
She was at home in the school room, Sabbath school or church.
In the early days of temperance work, Mrs. Russell presided over County and District Conventions and often led on the definite results. She plead with the drinker and with the saloon keeper face to face in his saloon and engage in a business more productive to the good of human race. Her bible was her daily companion, from which she derived much comfort and spiritual strength. She prayed in public and in secret and her prayers were an inspiration to those who heard them. She was a kind wife, a good neighbor and a blessing to every community in which her lot was cast. She was postmistress of Southland for nearly 17 years.
Having no children of her own, she often had orphan children in her home to rear and train.
She passed peacefully into the arms of her trusted Savior. A few hours before her death her husband repeated a part of the 23 Psalm, "Though I walk through the Valley and Shadow of Death, I fear no Evil," leaving out the clause "for thou art with me." She quickly supplied the clause "for thou art with me" showing her faith in a present Savior even when the throes of death were stealing over her.
May her virtues be cherished and imitated by those of us who are left to mourn her loss.
After Ruth died, William remarried c1915 to Ruth's widowed niece, Nancy Matilda (Hinshaw) Norton.11
William died Mar 17 1917, buried LaGrange Cemetery, LaGrange, Lee County, Arkansas.4
William was buried with Ruth Sabina, with a double gravestone (presumably ordered by Nancy Matilda). Nancy Matilda is buried near them in the same cemetery.4
