In Memory of Ruth Owens

By the time this post appears I’ll be attending the funeral of my dear friend, Ruth Owens.
Blogging will resume later today.

Ruth Ann Owens
December 29, 1956 – October 7, 2011

Lady Liberty

I wrote about Ruth here when she passed away this past weekend.
She blogged here at Gateway Pundit as Lady Liberty. She commented as Chisum, after her cat.

I am including her obituary from the Las Cruces paper.

Ruth Ann Owens, 54, of Las Cruces, died Friday, October 7, 2011. She was born December 29, 1956 in Baltimore, MD to Michelina and Richard Mellinger . She moved to Las Cruces in 2005 from Chadds Ford, PA.

She was a political blogger and citizen journalist for “The Gateway Pundit” blog and will be missed by her many fans from all over the world. Her passion was politics and she dedicated her life to making this country a greater place to live for her grandchildren and all future generations. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her ever loving husband John J. Owens Jr. of Las Cruces, her two children, daughter Rachel Pulaski and husband Jason Floyd of Las Cruces, son Eric Owens of Las Cruces, father Richard Dean Mellinger of Laurel, DE, sister Mickie Fry and husband Norman of Port Orange, FL and brother Richard Mellinger and wife Patti of Baltimore, MD , step-daughter Kathleen Owens and husband Randy of Dallas, TX, step-son Paul Owens of Orlando, FL, step-son John Owens III and wife Sherry of Overland Park, KS, brother in-law James Owens and wife Kathy of Newtown Square, PA , sister in-law Pat Hammond of Myrtle Beach, SC and eight beautiful grandchildren.

Thank you, Ruth for all of your help. For your support, for your fighting spirit and positive attitude.
I will miss you, my friend and fellow blogger.
Until we meet again.
