Happy Birthday, Mrs. Ethel Ruth!

The anxious group awaits the arrival of "Birthday Girl" Mrs. Ethel Ruth Russell


A well-kept secret was finally brought to completion as the family of Mrs. Ethel Ruth Russell celebrated her birthday, with a grand party at the Ramada Inn in Kingsport on May 12th.
Most of you know Mrs. Ethel Ruth is the Chaplain for the Douglass Alumni Association.
Sherry, Robin, Dinky, Teresa and Esther were wonderful in their tributes to their mom and grandmom. Scottie was not able to attend, but his spirit was back home with the loved ones. Nat Smith also read a poem from Scottie to the group.
Robin Russell told the group of family and friends how she never misses a call to her mom, not even if she's on a cruise, Teresa and Esther had wonderful tributes to the family matriarch, and of course, Dinky "partied like a rock star."
The group dined on baked chicken, green beans, baked potato, salad, and desserts, while reminiscing about the days growing up in Riverview and South Central, and a good time was had by all.
