Ruth Enyart Black

Jan. 29, 1918 - Feb. 7, 2013

Ruth Enyart Black, 95, died Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013, at North Woods Commons in Kokomo. Born Jan. 29, 1918, in Fulton County, she was the daughter of Charles Thomas Enyart and Angeline E. (Conn) Enyart. On Jan. 23, 1944, she was married to Eugene E. Black in Fulton United Brethren Church by the Rev. Stacy F. Shaw. He preceded her in death Sept. 18, 1996.

She went to school in Fulton and graduated in 1935 from Argos High School, Argos, and then attended Indiana Central College in Indianapolis. She was a member of Bible Baptist Church, in Kokomo, for 46 years.

Mrs. Black loved painting and making baby gowns for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Her other interests were travel, reading and, especially, watching the Pacers’ basketball games. Foremost in her life was her relationship with her Lord and Savior, her joy of her family and being a homemaker and entertaining friends.
