Obituary

South Glens Falls
Ruth Carter Walters, wife of Arthur S. Walters, of South Glens Falls, NY, passed away surrounded by her loving family on September 12, 2019 in Glens Falls Hospital after a recent illness.

She was born on January 2, 1943, in Nashville, TN, the youngest daughter of the late Mildred A. and Harold H. Carter.

Ruth graduated from Madison High School in Nashville and earned a B.A. in elementary education from Maryville College, Maryville, TN in 1965. Ruth began her teaching career soon after in the South Glens Falls Central School District (Harrison Avenue). Additionally, she taught at the South Glens Falls United Methodist Church Nursery School and retired from the Glens Falls City Schools (Jackson Heights, Middle School).

She was an avid gardener producing beautiful flower arrangements. Ruth had a wonderful voice and loved to sing and play the piano. Ruth and Sam traveled across five continents and cross country (Alaska to Patagonia, Hawaii to the Middle East and Africa). She collected nativities representative of each of cultures she visited. Ruth enjoyed entertaining for friends and family, setting her formal table days in advance.
Ruth was a 50+ year active member of the South Glens Falls United Methodist Church, serving on many committees. She cherished her small study and support groups there. Additionally, Ruth participated in the Senior Aquatic Fitness class at the YMCA and SGF Seniors of Bikes. Friends were Ruth’s treasure. She and Sam camped and traveled with their Card Club for over fifty years. Equally important to her was the Thursday Night Bunch of retired teachers.

In addition to her parents, Ruth was predeceased by her sisters, Carolyn A. C. Hassall and Helen C. Dam.

Ruth and Sam were married on June 25, 1965 and celebrated a wonderful life together for 54 years. She is survived by Sam; daughter, Carol W. Smith (Kevin) of Hinesburg, VT; son, Wade (Heather) of Dallas, TX; three grandchildren, Trent W. Smith, Claire M. Smith and Nolan R. Walters.

Calling hours will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15 at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 136 Main Street, South Glens Falls.

A funeral service will take place at 11:00 a.m. Monday, September 16 at South Glens Falls United Methodist Church, 15 Maplewood Parkway, South Glens Falls with Rev. Peggy Brink Pastor Officiating.
