Ruth Reid reading her LRN

Updated: July 6, 2018

Ruth Reid, formerly of Little River County, now lives in Texas. Her daughter, Robin Alexander recently got her mom a subscription of the Little River News so that she could keep up with what was going on in her beloved Little River County. She was so thrilled when the first issue arrived!
Reid, 91, attended Miller Elementary the first eight years of school. She graduated from Winthrop High School in 1944 with seven other classmates – their names were written in the sidewalk in front of the school. Their names were still visible when she attended a class reunion in 1985.
In 1946, she married Noel Denison Reid. He passed away in 1983 of cancer and she never remarried.
“Years ago she told me she missed daddy,” Alexander said. “He was her best friend and the love of her life. She is the last of her generation of our family.”
Reid has three children, 11 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson.
