Ruth Odom “Always 39” celebrates 101st birthday

Posted

My grandmother, Ruth Odom, honored the world with her presence, her love, kindness, honesty and upmost values. Just as our loving great grandma Autry Ball did for 104 years, such big shoes to fill but Mama you have done it with such grace. In her 101 years of life, she has accomplished so much. For almost 40 years she was a court reporter, she recently sold her personal office in the BlackStone Building, she continues making great decisions in her investment, real happy when the stock market is up, she continues with a few of her properties that Nana once said would be big one day...and I do think she was right, thanks to Brennonfeild. Every Thursday you can catch Mamma up and dressed to impress for her Bridge and Circle Friends, they have played together for years. Up until the past few years Mama loved to keep her yard beautiful with lots of flowers, she loved to pull weeds and keep the property to what we all know our Nana Ball’s expectations. With the helping hands of her daughter Autrey and son in law Rodger, her granddaughter Lynda and life-long friend Angela, the four of them help her continue to keep her special touches of her beautiful yard, hosting and serving her friends, as they play and laugh, and splurge on coffee and dessert. with coins on the table, “Big Money”, they all leave happy from Mama’s home.
