Davie Ruth was a graduate of Lutcher Stark High School and went on to Business School.  Davie was a giving, caring, and beautiful woman who raised her family, traveled around the world, and then settled back in Orange, Texas.  She was very active with her church family of First United Methodist Church and later with her church family at Faith United Methodist Church, Orange. She was instrumental in working with United Methodist Women and many church Outreach Programs along with many Children’s Miniseries.  Davie was a devoted volunteer and worked tirelessly helping with a wide variety of Church Activities for many years.
