Ruth Elaine (Hickle) Mills, Uledi, Pa.

     On Monday, December 28, 2020, it was after 3 in the afternoon, the sky turned so bright as I sat there in my Mom’s chair. I believe that’s when my Mom went home to be with Jesus!

     She was our best friend and loved us all very much. She was truly loved by all who knew her. She loved to sing and sang at many weddings and sang with the Uniontown and Masontown Ecumenical Choirs.

     She was born on November 28, 1935 in Meadowbrook, South Union Township, Pa. to the late William Hugh Hickle and Ida Belle (Martin) Hickle.

     Ruth graduated President of her class in 1953 from Fairchance High School.

     She married Thomas D. Mills Sr. on March 6, 1958 in Deep Creek Maryland.

     Ruth worked as a phone operator at Ohio Bell in Ohio and as a cashier/clerk for Clover Farm Store and Moss’ Market and Lion’s Dry Cleaner/Laundromat.

     Ruth was predeceased by her husband, parents and three brothers, William, Raymond & Richard

(Jennifer), Zack, Sara (Bryan), Justin (Amanda), Weston and Waylon and great-grandchildren, Riley, Liviyah, Alawna, Cutler, Avilyn, Adeline, Magnolia and Remington.
