Ruth Wood is celebrating her 101st birthday today.

Ruth Wood turns 101 today. 

A small woman with snow-white curls and fierce, intelligent blue-green eyes, Ruth lives at Greystone Assisted Living with her spirited rescue cat, Izzy.

Ruth was born into a farm family in rural Elsmore, where she attended school, walking mile after dusty mile to make it to classes on time each day. “I believe she’s the last member of her class still living,” risked her son, Gary, a genial man of 77, who sat visiting with his mother last Thursday.
