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.

For 37 years, Mrs. Black was the co-owner of Black Magazine Agency in Logansport, which supplied magazine subscriptions to schools and public libraries in the United States and countries abroad. Upon retirement, she and her husband moved to Kokomo and spent winters in Mesa, Ariz.

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.

She is survived by one son, Philip Black and wife Judy, Chicago; two daughters, Marcia Goldstein, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, and Beverly Timberman, Collierville, Tenn.; one sister, Maxine Elliott and husband Van, El Cajon, Calif.; two granddaughters, Rachel Goldstein-Davis and husband Steve Davis, and Elizabeth Goldstein; one great-grandson, Eli Davis; two stepgrandchildren, Kellie Combs, and Kurt Timberman and wife Brandy; five stepgreat-grandchildren, Josh Combs, Allie Combs, Jared Timberman, Faith Timberman and Riley Timberman; nieces, Nelda Mikesell and husband Cliff, Rochester, Donna Conroy and husband Jim, Denver, Colo., and Colleen Grimson and husband John, San Diego; and one nephew, Jay Enyart, Denver, Colo.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; two brothers, Robert and Wilbur; and one sister, Arabelle.
