Ruth Ann Tramble, "Ruthie", 77, of Antlers, Oklahoma, entered the gates of Heaven on March 22, 2021 after losing a year and a half long battle with the dreaded cancer. She was surrounded by family and greeted at the gates by several family members waiting for her to tell them how to get things done the right way.
She is preceded in death by her father: John Pearl Campbell; mother: Velma Johnson; sister: Vadis Barrick; mother-in-law: Geneva Tramble; and father-in-law: James "Olvin" Tramble.
Ruth is survived by her husband Charles and pain in the side of 59 years; her two daughters: Carolyn Flowers and husband Eric, Lisa Carlson and husband Kevin; brothers: Johnny Campbell and Jerry Campbell; sisters: Margaret Ham, Margie Patrick, Barbara Johnson, Charolette Jordan, and Sharon Lucas; her 5 grandkids: Isaac, Brittany, Cassie, Sommer, and Riley and 10 great grandkids, whom she loved more than anything else in the world... except for her flowers, garden, and a spotless house.
She was born in Broken Bow, OK to John Pearl Campbell and Velma Campbell. She lived in Mt. Herman, OK until she was 16. At 16 she decided it was time to get out of Oklahoma and headed west to California. There she met Charles and the rest is history. She spent her time raising her girls, ordering Charles around, and making the world a better place. After 27 years of working for the USDA administrative studies she finally decided it was time to retire. There, she was known as "Ruthie" and was oh so loved by everyone she came in contact with.
Ruth will be missed dearly by all who knew her. She was an incredible wife, mother, Nana, and so much more. She had an unparalleled zest for life and an infectious laugh that everyone knew her got to experience. She always put her family first- her selflessness was beyond reproach. She will live on in our hearts, minds, thoughts, prayers and laughs forever.
Following her wishes, there will not be a funeral service. However, there will be a celebration of life on Saturday March 27, 2021 at noon at the Antlers Library community room. We will be celebrating potluck style, sharing memories and making more.
