Death and Memorial Notice

RUTH E. RODDICK April 23, 1947 August 30, 2021

Ruth Eunice (Rice) Roddick, 74. Passed away August 30, 2021. Ruth was born April 23, 1947 in San Salvador, El Salvador to Ralph and Elena (Barrientos) Rice. Ruth worked for the state of WA as a social worker for over 30 years. She retired in 2012. She found herself at home at several churches in her lifetime, most recently she was attending Trinity Bible Fellowship in Bremerton, WA.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother; Benny and her sister; Annette.
She is survived by her devoted husband; Robert Roddick and her children; Edward, Robert, Sarah and Rebecca as well as her grandchildren; Daniel 28, Natalie 24, Samantha 20, Amanda 20, Matthew 19, Betsy 15, Gabriel 14, Nina 13, Joseph 12, Thaddeus 13 and Grace 11 and her great grandson; Theodore 4 months.
Ruth Roddick was a daughter of The Lord, Our God, first and above all else. Secondly, she loved her family fiercely and finally, she loved this nation, in that order! Ruth moved to San Marcos, TX with her family at age 13, along with her parents and her 6 siblings. She learned to speak English as a young lady and has appreciated the freedoms and possibilities she found in the land of her father. Ruth loved reading and did a daily devotional with the bible. Her relationship with Christ and her dedication to sharing The Gospel is the first thing anyone, she truly knew, would tell you about her. She reveled in her dedication to her faith, her marriage, her children and her grandchildren. The daughter of a missionary,
Ruth knew the value in spreading the Good Word. Ruth lead many Bible studies and taught Sunday School most of her adult life. She taught Sunday school the morning before she passed. Ruth has been on numerous mission trips, volunteered at the local prison, Crisis Pregnancy Centers and embraced every opportunity to spread God's word. Only regret... not visiting The Holy Land in her lifetime.
Her family will celebrate the life of this amazing woman in a private memorial service September 11, 2021.
